Become a CARA Angel

Without the involvement of willing volunteers, CARA might not exist.  From its earliest days, when W. H. Beveridge drew together a founding council which included luminaries such as John Maynard Keynes, Margery Fry and A. E Housman, to the present, CARA has depended on supporters to act as advocates and mentors.   In 2010, the Archbishop of Canterbury met some of our scholars and spoke eloquently on CARA’s behalf for a public meeting at University College, London.

You can help in many ways.  The support of UK academics as mentors to at-risk academics, advocates for CARA within their institutions, or workshop and research leaders is always welcome.  Our employment services depend on advice from industrial and commercial organisations.  Student supporters have been involved in events including sponsored challenges and book swaps, and have organised public discussions with some of our scholars.   CARA also often has opportunities for volunteers and interns.   

 ‘Coming from an atmosphere of political oppression and persecution, of hate and violence, of lawlessness, blackmail and of intrigue, we found here a spirit of friendliness, humanity, tolerance and fairness… and above all, respect for humanity.’

Sir Hans Krebs
