We stand ready to support Afghan refugees and will work with the local councils to facilitate their arrival. Please do not collect or send donations to us without prior arrangement. We’re working to establish people’s needs and will post those when we have them. As always, thank you for your efforts but please help us focus on what’s most useful and important.
Cambridge has always been ready and willing to welcome refugees in times of crisis, and there have rarely been more people fleeing persecution and war. Offering sanctuary is a proud Cambridge tradition. We’re good at it, we always have been.
The Cambridge Refugee Resettlement Campaign (CRRC) is a group of volunteers, initially set up by Citizens UK, that works with other organisations in Cambridge to welcome refugees and those seeking asylum. We aim to build positive public opinion about refugees, and to enable the people of Cambridgeshire to volunteer to help those newly arrived in the area.
We work with the local authority, landlords and refugees to enable the people of Cambridgeshire to volunteer their services and provisions to help those newly arrived in the area.
Doctors of the World have produced translations into 34 languages of the NHS coronavirus advice, including English and Arabic, here.
Our quarterly email newsletters will show you how we’ve been helping
refugees in Cambridge, and give you ways in which you can help.
