In October 2016, Oasis was asked by the Home Office to open an emergency safe house for young refugees that had crossed the channel from Calais. Since then we have had the privilege of engaging extensively with other refugee support charities and gained first hand insight into how government was responding to the crisis. Our new report - "A Moral Imperative" - captures our own experiences but it is also the first coordinated gathering of available information about the scale and effectiveness of the UK’s response to the Calais crisis.
The report makes a series of policy recommendations outlining how the UK should continue to respond to this immediate crisis and better manage the integration of young refugees into life in Britain.
The Child Refugee Charter
The report serves as the basis of the new Child Refugee Charter – a declaration for people to sign and show Government that we wish to live in a society that is equipped to help some of the world’s most vulnerable people at times of crisis.
Write to your MP
Once you have signed the Child Refugee Charter, please consider writing to your MP to make it clear that you support a compassionate solution to the current crisis.
