The 2020 Yorkshire & Humberside regional gathering took place in Leeds on Saturday 15 February 2020.
The gathering is for all City of Sanctuary groups in Yorkshire and Humberside as well as partners and supporters. It is an important opportunity to share information and learn from each other – as well as to find out about critical national and international issues relevant to our movement.
The full programme is currently in development but we will be talking about issues like:
1) Increasing the participation and engagement of people seeking sanctuary
2) Working with Local Authorities
3) Using Streams and Awards
There will be inspirational speakers, workshops and, as usual, plenty of opportunities for local groups across the region to share good practice, solutions they have found to common challenges and aspirations for next year.
There are some travel bursaries available to enable people to attend the gathering who otherwise might be prevented from doing so. These bursaries are prioritised for sanctuary seekers and members of City of Sanctuary groups with no independent funding who have not previously attended a gathering. Please book your place first and then complete this form to apply for your travel bursary.
