City of Sanctuary

City of Sanctuary is a movement to build a culture of hospitality for people seeking sanctuary in the UK. Our goal is to create a network of towns and cities throughout the country which are proud to be places of safety, and which include people seeking sanctuary fully in the life of their communities.

A City of Sanctuary is a place where the skills and cultures of people seeking sanctuary are valued, where they are included in local communities and able to contribute to the life of the city, community groups, local government, media, business, schools and colleges have a shared commitment to offering sanctuary, and people seeking sanctuary can easily build relationships with local people as neighbours, friends and colleagues. Through these relationships, local people come to understand the injustices refugees face, and become motivated to support and defend them.
