Carlisle Refugee Action Group (CRAG) was set up in September 2015, under the name Calais Action Carlisle as a response to the refugee crisis in Calais and Dunkirk. It is part of Carlisle One World Centre. CRAG has the following aims:
• To provide practical support for people living in refugee camps.
• To raise awareness of the issue faced by refugees/asylum seekers in order to bring about practical and political solutions.
• To support refugees/asylum seekers living locally.
• To engage in fundraising activities to support the work of the group.
