City of Sanctuary is a national movement of people and organisations promoting a culture of welcome and inclusion throughout the country.

We are working to make our cities, towns, institutions and other spaces into places of welcome and safety for everyone, especially people seeking sanctuary from war and persecution.

Wherever those seeking sanctuary go, they should find people who will welcome and support them, understand why they are here, and recognise the contribution they can make to our society.

I support the ‘City of Sanctuary’ vision, welcoming those fleeing violence and persecution in their own countries. I recognise the contribution of refugees and people seeking sanctuary to our society. I am committed to taking practical steps to welcome and include them in our communities and am actively seeking ways of supporting them wherever I can.
