Mission Statement

Working at the frontlines of Europe's ongoing refugee crisis, Refugee Info Bus is an independent, UK registered, but very mobile, charity. We 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. Our mission is to assist refugees in having access to the rights that people with European passports take for granted. We currently work via two mobile buses in Greece and France, and have a strong Facebook following stretching from Germany to Iraq, Turkey, Afghanistan, Iran and Syria.

Description

Our first Refugee Info Bus began life as an old horsebox, purchased, stripped out, cleaned-up and converted into a mobile office and WIFI hotspot for refugees and asylum seekers living in the Calais ''Jungle'' Camp. Within a year, we facilitated over 91,000 WIFI logins and delivered more then 1,000 workshops to 3,000+ individuals in the UK and French asylum systems.

Currently, we aim to provide accessible, relevant legal information to displaced people in Calais and Dunkirk in a way that facilitates agency and dignity to the people who access our services.
