A Stream of Sanctuary encourages professionals or practitioners within ‘communities of practices or interests’ to come together to embed the concepts of welcome, safety and inclusion within their professions, sectors and organisations, together with other interested individuals (including people seeking sanctuary), groups and organisations.
Any individual or organisation working within a Stream of Sanctuary must be committed to the vision and values of City of Sanctuary. The development of new activities, projects and initiatives within a Stream must be aligned with City of Sanctuary network principles. A Stream will also enable the sharing of best practice, resources and ideas. Organisations that fall within a Stream of Sanctuary may wish to apply for a Sanctuary Award following specific criteria which have been developed by the streams steering group and in consultation with the various networks.
