Care4Calais is a charity supporting refugees and asylum seekers across Europe and the UK. When refugees first arrive in the UK it can be bewildering for them. Navigating a new country and a foreign language is a big challenge, made worse if you have no money and are scared and alone. 

What we do
Our volunteers meet with refugees and asylum seekers to provide a friendly face and a helping hand. We collect and distribute clothes, shoes, mobile phones and other essentials.
We can also help them to access services such as legal aid or public transport and lots of groups offer English lessons, games and days out.

All of our UK groups are volunteer-run and they have been able to help so many people in so many amazing ways. But - there are more people who need our help and that’s why we need you!

You can be a virtual volunteer, too.
Not all of our volunteers are on the ground, we have virtual volunteers who assist with admin, welfare calls and help with learning English and much more.

Why join Care4Calais?
Becoming a volunteer with Care4Calais gives you the opportunity to help others whilst making new friends, learning about new cultures and languages, gaining valuable skills and being part of an amazing community dedicated to making a difference.
