Who we are


Dunkirk Adult Learning is a project within Carlisle Refugee Action Group (CRAG), which is part of the charity Carlisle One World Centre (www.cowc.co.uk, charity number 1088693).   


As the umbrella organisation, Carlisle One World Centre provides leadership and support to Dunkirk Adult Learning, while ensuring proper accountability for its finances and actions.


Carlisle One World Centre (COWC) is a local charity addressing global issues, seeking to:


  • Raise awareness of the interconnectedness of local and global issues, and how our actions  – as individuals, as communities and as a nation – affect the world.

  • Educate people of all ages about the issues facing people in developing countries.

  • Support the economically and socially deprived, both locally and globally.

  • Campaign for justice throughout the world through a programme of education, awareness-raising and practical activities.




While we are well respected by the French associations running and involved in La Liniere Refugee Camp, Dunkirk, we have yet to find a French Association to be our formal French Partner. We are hopeful that we will soon find such an organisation or that our French friends and supporters will form one.
