The send off will take place at 5pm at Downing Street on the evening of Friday 8 December, please join us to send off volunteers and bring collections if you can. .

Lord Dubs will also be supporting a ‘Dubs Now’ day of action in the build up to the solidarity weekend this Friday 1 December.

Stand Up To Racism and Care4Calais are working together to raise financial support and much needed items to ease the suffering of refugees now scattered across Northern France and Belgium after the closure a year ago of the ‘Jungle’ refugee camp in Calais by French authorities.

They are also joining the growing outcry against the governments failure to offer the care and support needed towards unaccompanied child refugees.
