Statement on Charity Commission Inquiry
Care4Calais will work positively and transparently with the Charity Commission to ensure best-practice governance and compliance. We remain committed to our work supporting refugees and asylum seekers, and to our legal and ethical duties as a charitable organisation.
Over the last 12 months Care4Calais has grown considerably to meet the unprecedented need of its beneficiaries and the challenges of the Covid pandemic. Thousands of volunteers have stepped up and given countless hours to meet this need and the trustees and management have worked tirelessly to support them.
These extraordinary circumstances have put pressure on our systems and our staff and volunteers have worked hard to meet these challenges. The trustees and management committee are all volunteers. In this way charity costs are kept to a minimum so that the maximum benefit can be delivered to people in great need.
