City of Sanctuary holds the vision that our nations will be welcoming places of safety for all and proud to offer sanctuary to people fleeing violence and persecution. In order to realise this vision, City of Sanctuary supports a network of groups, which includes villages, towns, cities and regions across the UK and Ireland, and others engaged in Streams of Sanctuary, Sanctuary Awards  and activities intended to welcome people seeking sanctuary.

For more information see our Charter.

Whilst we are a movement in our own right we also contribute towards wider movement building through partnership work and supporting advocacy and campaigning initiatives.

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.
