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 help local groups and individuals to welcome and appreciate people seeking refuge and asylum more actively.

Our next Meeting is on Friday 24th March at Nottingham Playhouse at 3.30pm

Meeting to bring togerther people interested in getting involved in building Nottingham City Of Sanctuary.

The draft Agenda
• look at the CoS website / resources etc and a quick overview of what CoS is
• agreeing the best use of the Nottingham CoS website in the interests of all groups and organisations in Nottingham – its content and maintenance
• possibly review the outcome of the Sanctuary Commission and where CoS might fit in with this and support strategic planning for all of Nottingham
• looking at what structures need to be put into place ( if any) to promote and develop Nottingham as a City of Sanctuary
• anything else that you may suggest or raise

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 organizations and volunteers. Supporting organisations promise to welcome and include people seeking sanctuary in their activities.

There are many ways to include sanctuary seekers in your activities and you can find plenty of ideas in the Resources page here.
