Yorkshire & Humber to be a ‘Region of Sanctuary’?

At the recent ‘Region of Sanctuary’ conference in Bradford a wide range of organisations gave enthusiastic support to the aim of becoming the first region to make a commitment to being a place of safety and welcome.

Participants from City of Sanctuary groups, Local Authorities, interfaith, community and refugee groups all over the region used the event to share learning experiences and explore issues affecting people seeking sanctuary throughout Yorkshire & Humber.

The next step is to develop a model for how a Region of Sanctuary would work, to involve regional organisations in supporting grassroots efforts toward building a culture of hospitality.

A short video of the event will be available soon.
