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 found Safe Passage in September 2015.
Safe Passage exists to help unaccompanied child refugees and vulnerable adults in Europe find safe, legal routes to the UK. In addition to our programme in Calais, we have expanded into Greece and are currently launching in Italy. When our clients 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.
