We are working towards Nottingham becoming a City of Sanctuary. In the city and county, there are flourishing but hard-pressed groups who help people seeking sanctuary to become part of the wider community. We want to encourage local groups and individuals to welcome and appreciate people seeking refuge and asylum more actively.

How can you help? Are you part of a group or organisation who would support Nottingham becoming a City of Sanctuary by signing the resolution of support?

Supporters can include faith groups, community centres, charities, social clubs, schools, local services and businesses, as well as refugee organisations and volunteers. Supporting organisations promise to welcome and include people seeking sanctuary in their activities.

People seeking asylum and refugees newly arrived in Nottingham should make contact with Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Refugee Forum where they can get help and support in accessing benefits, health care, English classes and other practical issues.
