dsc_9553Welcome to Bristol City of Sanctuary

Bristol officially launched as a City of Sanctuary in June 2011, and since then has been working hard to keep the momentum created from this going. We celebrate and welcome the diversity that makes up our city, believing it should be something to be proud of and that should be applauded.

We invite you, whether you are a business, a local organisation or an individual to pledge your support and get involved in any way that would suit you. Please check out our links to find out about different initiatives that we are running and all of our upcoming events. Together we can work to make sure that our status as a City of Sanctuary is deserved, uniting to create a place of safety and sanctuary for refugees and asylum-seekers.

City of Sanctuary is a national network, a movement of local groups made up by businesses, community organisations and individuals, all with one thing in common; their belief that sanctuary seekers should be welcomed, and that their contribution to society should be celebrated.
