Yesterday evening Britain came together at the Peace vigil in Tower Bridge. We stood with thousands of others to remember the victims of the London Bridge and Manchester terror attacks as well as victims of terrorism worldwide. After the official speech, community groups contributed: we read out a testament to one of the victims of the attacks, and Citizens of the World Choir sang and led the crowd in a rendition of Imagine and What A Wonderful World. The @weareonehq and @help4refugees_org wrote a long mural of messages, and candles in a heart shape were lit to honour the victims.
People from all walks of life attended, and it was wonderful to see so many of our friends from refugee, Muslim and volunteer groups all together standing in solidarity against terror.
A truly beautiful testament to the human spirit.

Today is #volunteerrecognitionday so we wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU to all of our amazing volunteers who work so hard to carry out Calais Action's work both in the U.K and in the rest of Europe.

We couldn't do it without those of you who have given and continue to give your time so generously to keep our mission alive.

Here's to you, you wonderful lot!! ❤️❤️ #volunteer #calaisaction #calais #volunteers #chooselove #refugeeswelcome #lovenothate

Do you live in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol or Cardiff? Would you be willing to host a refugee in your home?
Refugees at Home is a small charity who help refugees and asylum seekers avoid homelessness and destitution during the long, difficult UK asylum process. Their generous hosts offer a bed and a chance for the guests to catch their breath ready for their next step in building a new life here in the UK.
As the legal and social climate towards refugees grows more hostile, you are needed more than ever before, and Refugees at Home desperately need more hosts. They really need hosts in or in commuting distance of a city of town, who will give a man a room for a month or more - current need hotspots are South/East London, Cardiff, Bristol, Manchester and Birmingham, but this can change quickly! Most guests are men, as they are more likely to be assessed as ‘not priority need’- but they are very vulnerable on the streets, and a host placement helps with integration and language skills, as well as being very rewarding for the host. It’s no exaggeration to say hosting really does transform lives.

All hosts are checked by home visitors- volunteer social workers, GPs, community mental health practitioners and the like- who both protect guests and support hosts. Home visitors are also needed, so if you have a professional background in home assessment Refugees at Home would love to hear from you.
There is a load more information on their website, www.refugeesathome.org where you can register to be a host or a home visitor or ask one of their volunteers questions.

A little reminder from @unrefugees, UNHCR the UN Refugee Agency that refugees do not choose where they resettle.

While MPs and Lords fight over the lives of child refugees we remember the love and innocence of those sleeping out in the cold.

Our founder Libby found this yesterday from a visit to Greece last year. Drawn by a child with nowhere to go and no immediate family in the port of Athens. If only those who have been blessed with such privilege could show as much love as the children who wait to be saved.
