Building on the successes of City of Sanctuary groups throughout the nation and other partners in the Welsh Refugee Coalition, we’re aiming for Wales to become the world’s first ‘Nation of Sanctuary’, celebrating Welsh hospitality and our history of migration and safety.
Our vision is of a Wales wherever people seeking sanctuary go, they are met with welcome, understanding and celebration of their unique contribution to the rich tapestry of Welsh life.
We know that it will take action from a wide range of people and organisations, all over Wales, to make this vision a reality. We’re pleased we already have the support of Welsh Government and have started some really exciting work with universities, the health service and trade unions.
If you’d like to join the movement to make Wales a Nation of Sanctuary, you might want to consider some of the ideas here or contact us!
