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. City of Sanctuary operates under local group names which can be found on the groups page. In Ireland City of Sanctuary operates under the name Places of Sanctuary Ireland.

Wherever refugees go, we want them to feel safe and find people who will welcome them.
