Europe Refugee Crisis Appeal

We are running an urgent appeal in response to Europe’s growing refugee crisis. We will use all donations to provide direct, targeted humanitarian emergency crisis grants for refugees in Calais and other European ports trying to reach Europe. The whole amount donated to this appeal will reach those in greatest need, so please donate today.

Room for Refugees

With the ongoing refugee crisis, we urgently need volunteers to host refugees in their homes, if you are interested and have space to take someone in, whether it’s for a few days, an extended period, or anything in between, please read the information pack and register as a host.
