Carlisle One World Centre

Charity description

Carlisle One World Centre logo
Carlisle One World Centre is supporting the Carlisle Refugee Action Group (CRAG), formerly Calais Action Carlisle, a group set up to raise funds to address the current Refugee Crisis in the Middle East and on the continent of Europe.
Donations to CRAG will go towards a wide range support, including transport, aid and volunteer costs in France, Greece, Turkey, Syria and elsewhere as the need arises.

Calais Action Carlisle was set up in 2015 as a response to the shocking images of refugees arriving in Europe from Syria, Africa and the Middle East.The group's main activities since then have been to collect and deliver food, clothing and shelter items to the men, women and children in the Calais and Dunkirk areas and elsewhere on Mainland Europe and Syria.
These items have been generously donated by people, groups and businesses from all over Cumbria.

Funding is required to store and transport donations and to support the work of volunteers. We send occasional cash donations for the purchase of essential items such as food, firewood, phone credit and sleeping bags.

We also campaign on a number of fronts including the resettlement of refugees to Cumbria and the UK and European Governments' policies towards asylum seekers. We are working with Cumbria County Council and partners on the resettlement of Syrian families to Cumbria.
As of 1st April 2016 5% of the money donated to CRAG has been allocated to COWC to cover administration costs.
