PLAY 4 CALAIS started as a grassroots initiative to provide pop-up cinema, safe play, football and cricket to the children, teenagers and adult refugees living in the Calais "Jungle". As the needs of our users changed and the refugees were relocated, so we adapted and expanded to become PLAY 4 CALAIS & BEYOND. Our motto is "be a light in the dark" which is both literally and figuratively what we are.
Support and find out more about our projects through the channels below, whether they take place in Calais, Dunkirk, Birmingham or Beyond. Donating will ensure that we are able to provide for each. To keep up to date with our activities, please follow us on the usual social media platforms.
Introduce yourself here! Whether you would like to come to a camp, build cinemas in Birmingham, sort through deliveries or be in charge of collecting toiletries for refugees, we can always use a helping hand.Get in Touch
