City of Sanctuary is a movement committed to building a culture of hospitality and welcome, especially for refugees seeking sanctuary from war and persecution. Our network of local groups includes boroughs, towns and cities across the UK and Ireland, all committed to building this culture of welcome across every sphere of society.
Wherever refugees go, we want them to feel safe and find people who will welcome them.
The national City of Sanctuary charity is a lean organisation with less than 3 full time staff and exists to promote the City of Sanctuary movement nationwide, and to encourage and nurture new and existing local and regional groupings to build a culture of welcome for asylum seekers and refugees. We need your donations to sustain and expand this work, specifically for things we cannot get trust funding for. These include travel for asylum seekers and trustees to attend meetings and events, development and printing of resources and for training events.
