Wakefield launched its initiative to become a City of Sanctuary to the Public Sector, on Thursday 17th June 2010, as part of the RASA conference in Refugee Week.  Read our Mission Statement here.  (Click the link).

Wakefield City of Sanctuary needs your help. Each week we support asylum seekers who are here legally but have no financial support. We provide them with some food and £10-20 per week for each asylum seeker and their family, to cover food, basic toiletries and travel to compulsory Home Office appointments.

Can you help us support people in need? Five easy ways to help:

Give us a small amount of money each month.
