Safe Passage is a UK based charity working to open safe and legal routes for refugees and asylum seekers within Europe through a highly effective combination of legal work, strategic litigation and political advocacy.
The project began in Autumn 2015 with an initiative to identify unaccompanied children in the Calais ‘jungle’ camp who might be eligible for family reunification. Our work has expanded from Northern France to Greece and Italy, where the organisation has continued to open and strengthen family reunion routes to other countries in Europe working in partnership with lawyers and local NGOs.
Safe Passage works across borders, serving persons in need of protection, predominantly children by facilitating collaborative working, delivering training and providing resources to share best practice and expertise. Safe Passage aims to strengthen the response of actors across Europe so more children can reach safety.
