Local groups from all sectors (faith groups, voluntary, business, education, etc) work together. Making a public commitment to welcome and include refugees and people seeking sanctuary in our usual activities.
Where local organisations and communities include sanctuary seekers in their activities, personal relationships are formed leading to greater understanding and support.
We want to influence the political debate on sanctuary through grass roots change, a mutual commitment to awareness raising right across society.
A culture of hospitality for those in need of safety.
We encourage communities to take pride in offering a place of safety for people whose lives are threatened. We celebrate sanctuary seekers’ contribution to our towns and cities.
