Information for Local Authority

City of Sanctuary has grown from its origins in Sheffield in 2005 to become an extraordinary network and movement with over 110 groups and rapidly growing networks of partners and streams.

The starting point for any local authority looking to find out more about City of Sanctuary is to read our Charter which describes what City of Sanctuary is and what it does. 

In December 2020 we launched the City of Sanctuary Local Authority Network which aims :-

  • 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
