The King stands with refugees

Last night something special happened – our team were invited to Buckingham Palace to meet the King and Queen.

Some of our team, trustees and lived experience Sanctuary Ambassadors attended a Humanitariam Reception at the Palace to recognise and reflect on the UK’s contribution to humanitarian efforts across the world, and to mark 60 years of the Disasters Emergency Committee.

We were delighted that our work was celebrated in this event that showcased the human stories of those involved in the sector, from fundraisers to frontline workers, and those who have been impacted by crises, including communities seeking to protect their cultural heritage, and refugees building new lives in the U.K.

In light of this government’s hostility, invites like this feel hopeful. Come what may, we’ll keep fighting for a world where refugees are welcomed everywhere.

Feeling royally generous?

Chip in and help support us to grow this movement of welcome for people seeking sanctuary
