Refugee Action

Refugee Action is campaigning against the government’s anti-refugee bill (Nationality and Borders Bill) which would see any Afghani arriving in the UK by any means other than a “legal flight” met with hostility which could include deportation.


Care4Calais is currently offering support to Afghan refugees arriving in Manchester, providing clothes, shoes, phones or other essentials.

Choose Love

Choose Love is working with a network of Afghan-led organisations to get help to where the need is greatest. Their projects aim to provide support and vital services to Afghan refugees, these include clothes, shelter, support for children and groups protecting women and children’s rights. These are things no one should go without.
