Welcome to Bradford City of Sanctuary

Bradford City of Sanctuary exists to generate an environment of safety and hospitality in the City. We identify gaps in support, connect people to places, promote and host events as well as advocate and educate for a fair, equal and diverse society.

We aim to create a city that is more inclusive and welcoming, where those seeking sanctuary can enrich our city, and be recognised for their contribution.

We work through partnerships with numerous voluntary and community groups to create, facilitate and support networks across the city.

Bradford is part of a rapidly growing national movement,¬†with over 100 groups. In 2010 we were one of the first places in the UK to be formally recognised as a ‘city of sanctuary’.

Take a look at the menu above to learn more about what we do, including our brilliant Schools of Sanctuary project, and how you can get involved.
