About Groups

City of Sanctuary groups are locally organised refugee support and solidarity groups that are working collaboratively to make their city, town, village or region a welcoming place of sanctuary.  

By working within the City of Sanctuary network, groups have access to a vast array of resources, expert support and collaboration opportunities with other groups.

Groups go beyond what they themselves can do to help people seeking sanctuary. They act as a rallying cry to other organisations and individuals in an area to offer sanctuary and welcome.

Whether it’s arranging distributions of vital supplies, promoting welcome and inclusion through activities and projects, raising awareness in schools or campaigning for political change – City of Sanctuary groups do everything possible to stand in solidarity with people forced to flee their homes. ⁣
