Information for Local Authority

City of Sanctuary has grown from its origins in Sheffield in 2005 to become an extraordinary network made up of hundreds of community groups, schools, local councils, universities, theatres, galleries and more.

The starting point for any local authority looking to find out more is to read the City of Sanctuary UK Charter which describes who we are and what we do.

The aims for the City of Sanctuary Local Authority Network are:

  • To support the development of a network of local authorities that are working towards the City of Sanctuary vision

  • To promote the embedding of a culture and practice of welcome in local authorities to support the City of Sanctuary theory of change
