Sanctuary Ambassadors
Anyone with a background in seeking sanctuary and who wishes to engage with the media is invited to register with us as a Sanctuary Ambassador. We provide support and training so that you can represent your group, speak to the media, join Sanctuary Award appraisal groups at national level or contribute to making videos to promote our vision of a positive culture of welcome to all.  This is in line with our principles of celebrating the contribution of people seeking sanctuary, and engaging them in decision making. 

See our resource pages for Sanctuary Ambassadors for more information.
