This is your City of Sanctuary

Who are we?

We are a dedicated charity with a huge vision that every person seeking sanctuary feels welcomed and safe and that their contribution to the community is valued.

What do we do?

  • We raise awareness of what it means to seek sanctuary in Bristol, challenging misconceptions and celebrating the immense contributions that people seeking sanctuary make to our city.
  • We advocate for a fair and humane asylum system, a system which protects rather than punishes
  • We work to embed welcome in Bristol’s businesses and institutions, running initiatives like our Schools of Sanctuary award.
  • Bristol has been a City of Sanctuary for over a decade. It would not have been possible without people like you. Our movement of welcome is made up of people who go above and beyond to change things for the better.
