'I had no words...' Fellows take action on the migrant crisis

Posted on September 17, 2015
Posted by Jean Demars
Fellowship: 2015

Jean Demars has recently left his role at Praxis where he set up and developed a housing programme for destitute migrants, including support to street outreach services, volunteer hosting scheme and a cross-subsidised model of housing. He is now a consultant to the homelessness and migration sectors.

Jane Rowley is a researcher and lecturer who spent much of her career working directly with people affected by addiction. She is currently investigating the practical application of support mechanisms for ex forces personnel & their families with a focus on trauma and recovery.

They chose to collaborate in writing this blog to share some of the commonalities experienced in practice and start a conversation about how we might work more collaboratively across sectors.  This blog, using Jean’s recent trip to Calais as a starting point is intended to be the first in a conversation which we hope will be expanded by other Clore Fellows in the months to come.
