City of Sanctuary is a national 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 throughout the UK which are proud to be places of safety, and which include people seeking sanctuary fully in the life of their communities.

A ‘City of Sanctuary’ is a place where a broad range of local organizations, community groups and faith communities, as well as individuals are publicly committed to welcoming and including people seeking sanctuary.

In 2015, Birmingham declared itself a City of Sanctuary: this was not the end of our work, but the beginning: find out what is already happening, and how you can get involved.
