Sanctuary Awards are used to recognise exemplary work in this field. These can be organisations which fall within a Stream of Sanctuary, or not.
A Sanctuary Award is given to an organisation that is able to demonstrate commitment to our values and vision of welcome, and that has applied our network principles within the organisation and its projects or activities.
An appraisal committee is nominated to undertake the process either locally, regionally or nationally (depending on the circumstances). At least one person on the committee must be a sanctuary seeker. We encourage groups to actively review awards every three years.
