Ely Refugee Resettlement Campaign (Ely RRC) is a group of volunteers working to raise awareness and to help with the resettlement of some refugee families in East Cambridgeshire. Ely RRC works as part of the Citizens UK national campaign to resettle refugees across the UK. The Campaign supports the resettlement of refugees from Syria who are being resettled via the Vulnerable Person Relocation Scheme (organised by the Home Office together with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees).
We campaign to raise awareness and public support for refugees and to encourage our local council to commit to resettling refugees here. We aim to enable the people of East Cambridgeshire to volunteer their services and provisions to help those that we hope to resettle in the area. We gather pledges of support from East Cambridgeshire residents in the form of volunteer time, practical goods and services that can be used to help support refugees in our area.
