George is responsible for the strategic direction and management of Safe Passage. He is the Lead Organiser for Citizens UK’s “New Citizens” strand of organising, a wide-ranging brief that covers immigration and integration, and founded Safe Passage in September 2015.
Safe Passage exists to help unaccompanied child refugees and vulnerable adults find safe, legal routes to sanctuary. We have reunited unaccompanied asylum seeking children from France, Greece, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Bulgaria and Syria with their relatives. For those clients who arrive in the UK, we also support their transition to a new life.
Our organisation is powered by Citizens UK – a group that empowers community action. We combine the skills and resources of our staff and supporters to open doors, establish precedent and advocate for change.
We are determined to find a way to give everyone fleeing persecution safe passage.
