South West and Wales Regional Gathering

“Sharing Our Story”

Venue: Cardiff Met University, Cardiff

We are holding the South West England and Wales Regional Gathering this year at Cardiff Met University. This follows on from the successful event held last year in Swindon. The gathering is open to all, whether or not you are already actively involved with a City of Sanctuary group. We are particularly keen to welcome those seeking sanctuary across South West England and Wales.

The theme of this year’s event will be Sharing Our Story, focusing on sharing good practice and ideas across the regions, promoting the voice of sanctuary seekers and how to engage the media. We will be working together to discuss common opportunities and challenges and exploring creative ways of working together.

Full details of the programme will be circulated nearer to the date.

We look forward to welcoming you to Cardiff for a day of inspiration, sharing of practice and continuing to build a movement of sanctuary.
