Where is it
Northern France: Calais and Dunkirk
About the project
Working at the frontlines of Europe’s ongoing refugee crisis, Refugee Info Bus is an independent, UK registered, but very mobile, charity. They are dedicated to supporting refugees on the move, or who have just arrived in Europe, with up to date and accessible legal information and assistance, free WiFi and phone charging. Their mission is to assist refugees in having access to the rights that people with European passports take for granted. They currently work via two mobile buses in Greece and France.
What will I be doing?
Working with displaced people on the move, providing Wifi/Phone Charging/Phones and Connections to Services that Provide Legal Aid. If you have a particular language background or legal background, you will be helping to create, update and share legal and service information either online or in person.
What impact would I have?
You would be working to supporting displaced people on the move in Europe, in accessing the rights that people with European passports so often take for granted.
Who would I be working with?
You will be working alongside a dedicated team of volunteers, who are working on the ground across Europe. You will also work with our close-knit team of online cultural mediators.
