Experienced volunteers needed in Calais camp

The long term volunteers in Calais are asking for anyone with experience working with us to spare time this coming week, particularly during Monday – Thursday. We all hope that the court case
this Tuesday will rule in favor of protecting the vulnerable and at risk; whatever the outcome we expect it to be an incredibly busy and demanding week. Those who are familiar with the systems and the camp will be crucial in our ability to support the residents during this challenging time. Your patience and flexibility will be hugely valuable.

Most needed items to bring with you:

Backpacks, blankets, sleeping bags, food that can be eaten without cooking (tinned food, dried fruit and nuts etc.), small tents and torches.

Vehicle with a tow bar or a flat bed trailer as a bonus!


The wonderful people at Leisure Fayre have made it super easy to get these urgently needed items directly to Calais. Calais urgently needs sleeping bags and blankets.
