Community Action Derby is a registered charity providing support and guidance for voluntary and community groups.?As the Volunteer Centre for Derby city they support volunteers to find placements and a range of opportunities across the city.
We are part of a grassroots movement working to provide aid and support to refugees. Since we started out in August 2015, in response to the ever increasing refugee crisis, we’ve been involved in several convoys to Calais and Dunkirk, delivering vital aid to refugees and volunteering in camps. We work alongside other teams to send sorted, donated clothing and essential items to refugee camps in France and Greece and – when this is possible – to Syria. Donated items we cannot send are sold to raise funds and we also have events and sponsored activities to raise further money. We are also hoping to run local English and art classes in the future.
