Help asylum seekers at Wethersfield Barracks
Right now, the UK Government is starting to move asylum seekers into the former RAF barracks at Wethersfield. The Government plans to house up to 1700 at the base, which is totally unsuitable for people who have fled war, persecution and torture.
The location of the base is remote, the buildings are in a state of disrepair, and as a former military base the environment is likely to retraumatise refugees who have been imprisoned in brutal military facilities in their home countries.
The asylum seekers at Wethersfield desperately need clothing and support. We can organise this, but we urgently need volunteers and donations. Can you help the asylum seekers in Wethersfield?
If you live within reasonable travelling distance of the village and can spare even just a little time, please click here to volunteer:
