Meet the RA-C Team
Refugee Action – Colchester was originally created to support refugees and asylum seekers in Calais in the summer of 2015…
Engaging in that situation has made us aware of the largely unseen issues faced by refugees and asylum seekers living in Colchester and the surrounding area.
Our remit has evolved to address that local need too – and we’ve formalised our group as the social enterprise Refugee Action – Colchester CIC to help us to deliver ever more, much needed, support.
