City of Sanctuary is a movement to build a culture of hospitality for people seeking sanctuary in the UK. Its goal is to create a network of towns and cities which are proud to be places of safety and welcome for people whose lives are in danger in their own countries.
A “City of Sanctuary” is a place where a broad range of local organisations, community groups, faith communities and individuals are publicly committed to welcoming people seeking sanctuary.
Birmingham City of Sanctuary is a group of people who are working towards the city becoming a City of Sanctuary. They want to hear from organisations who would like to find out how their work with diverse communities could be recognised as part of the City of Sanctuary movement.
Individuals and organisations can join the movement by signing a pledge of support on the Birmingham City of Sanctuary Group website.
If you would like to meet with a member of the group to find out more or if you would like to arrange for a speaker to come and talk to your organisation about the City of Sanctuary movement, please contact the group by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
