refyoume is a community group working with refugee charities on the ground in Calais.

We believe that everyone deserves the support of a community. That's why we organise volunteering trips for the people of Bath & Bristol to support grassroot refugee charities in Calais.

Our mission is to make it easy for people to donate their time to the people who need it most. To offer our friendship, support and aid to refugees from war, horror and oppression.

we're breaking down the barriers to volunteering.

We organise regular trips for volunteers from Bath & Bristol to travel to Calais and work directly with the charities on the ground. We make it easy for local people to take tangible action and support the refugees for a day, weekend or week. That we can all help build a stronger, more accessible global community.

be part of the difference By joining our community.

The charities who will benefit from your generous donations are those that do not receive government funding or aid and are losing vital support following the extraction of Choose Love from Calais and the tragic crisis unfolding in the Ukraine

THERE IS NO THEM AND US.

They are not a faceless headline, they are people.  Sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, wives, husbands and friends.

By engaging the public directly in the refugee situation, we believe we can spread awareness, understanding and hope. And that by encouraging more people to be involved, we can raise the voices of displaced people and empower change for good.

We urgently need your skills, knowledge and expertise.

Whether its plumbing or sewing, cooking or fundraising we want to connect you to the people helping on the ground. Just drop us an email and let us know what you can offer, and we will do our very best to make sure your skills help those who need it most.
