What we do?
Bristol was officially recognised as a city of sanctuary in 2010, and since then, with our supporters we have (and continue to) work hard to ensure that Bristol is a City of Sanctuary for all; that it is an inclusive and welcoming city.
We build upon the amazing work that is already being done across the city, supporting local organisations to deliver services for refugees and asylum seekers.
We work with local schools and colleges to help them become places of welcome for those seeking sanctuary.
We organise events and conferences, celebrating sanctuary within the city whilst also looking at ways to tackle the injustice that can be faced by refugees and asylum seekers.
We raise funds for our Bristol City of Sanctuary Transport Fund, which provides bus tickets for destitute asylum seekers and vulnerable refugees.
We work with local businesses, helping them to explore ways that they can harness the gifts and talents of sanctuary seekers.
