Our aim is to provide simple functional shelters that are suitable for local weather conditions whilst being fast and simple to assemble.
The designs of the structures we provide are constantly evolving, based on direct feedback from the installation crew and the people who ultimately live in them. This means that we can rapidly adapt designs to unpredictable and changing conditions.
In Calais the frames are fabricated, insulated and waterproofed in our offsite workshop. These ready-to-assemble sections are transported to site where the onsite volunteers assemble them in prearranged location. We work in partnership with a dedicated shelter allocation team who liaise with the local communities in the camp to identify those most in need of the shelters.
