We need you!

Once again, we've seen a inhumane and cruel eviction carried out in Calais. Heavily armed police forced refugees, including minors, onto buses with out any information or communication.

After providing no safe or warm spaces throughout the brutal winter , this week's eviction clearly has nothing to do with compassion or human rights.

Conditions are horrific and showing solidarity through this inhumane situation is immensely challenging.

We need your help now more than ever so please spread the word, follow us on social media and donate what you can. 

Winter is coming and we need hands!

Winter is coming and we need hands! Calling all washer uppers, choppers, stirrers, servers, drivers, sorters & more. Whether you come for a day, week or month, you will have a positive impact on the lives of hundreds of men, woman and children who are living rough in horrible conditions in northern France!

To volunteer, email us

No worries if you can't make it to Calais, you can join our London outreach and/or Donate here

Thank you Bean :)

Up-date from our co-founder Sam Jones

Hello good people, we would like to send out a message of heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all volunteers, fundraisers and supporters of RCK and its sister orgs.

You may well of have seen the horrific news about the recent tragic and unnecessary loss of a young life due to extremely inhumane and aggressive policing tactics, we are all deeply shocked and saddened by this serious incident, policies must change, people must come first.

The need to support the marginalised communities we currently help is as great as ever, whether on the streets of London or in the towns or countryside of northern France.

We're currently providing around 1300-1400 meals per day in Northern France and 180-240 per week in London, we are also distributing dates and fruit packs to help those who are observing Ramadan.

Our volunteers work tirelessly to provide thoughtful and compassionate support through food and water distribution daily, without your support and the immense ongoing efforts from our volunteers none of this would be possible.

Thank you all, a little compassion goes a long long way.

Have a great week xxx
