On October 24th it will be one year since the Calais ‘Jungle’ was demolished and thousands of refugees were displaced. At that time, thanks to pressure from people like you, the Government successfully transferred 750 child refugees from France to Britain. We need to keep the pressure up, and repeat this success.

There are still hundreds of unaccompanied child refugees living in Calais. They live in the woods with minimal provisions and sanitation, they have to face the constant threat of police violence and traffickers.

This is an important day to remember our success last year but also to put pressure on Government, this is a unique opportunity to get the #ChildrenOfCalais back on the political agenda. Come and be a part of it!
