New to City of Sanctuary or just plain curious? Do you want to understand what we do as a movement and as an umbrella organisation? Are you part of a local refugee support group and considering joining our network ? Are you a school, theatre, university, garden or community organisation keen to learn more about how to make your work more welcoming to people seeking sanctuary?
In this session, we will provide an overview of the background and growth of the City of Sanctuary movement across the UK, share our values and aims and how we work with community organisations across all four UK nations to support new arrivals.
You will get the chance to ask questions and learn about what others in our networks are doing, get advice on how to get started in supporting refugees and asylum seekers, connect with likeminded people, and find out how to make your community a more welcoming place for all.
There is no better place to get going – there is no better time than now.
