This charity works as an umbrella body for Cambridge and district, and aims to provide quality services for individuals and groups, and to bring about racial harmony between diverse communities, regardless of race, nationality or ethnic group. It supports a network of member organisations, offering resources, advice and advocacy, and helps establish new projects where it sees a particular need.
In October 2016, Allen Lane awarded £5,000 to fund a specific weekly drop-in for asylum seekers and refugees. The drop-in will offer a dedicated service, helping people to access legal help, asylum support and accommodation, and also with healthcare, education and social support needs. A team of volunteers will be supported by a part-time worker to run the drop-in service.
