Cardiff City of Sanctuary Networking Group

There are over 52 organisations that have pledged to support the Cardiff City of Sanctuary values.

The network sets out to work towards the vision first developed in Sheffield to recognise Cardiff as a city which is welcoming to all, is proud to offer sanctuary to those fleeing violence or persecution, and celebrates the contribution of asylum seekers and refugees to city life.

The Cardiff City of Sanctuary Networking group follows the core values of City of Sanctuary:

  • Learn about what it means to be seeking sanctuary, and be actively involved in awareness raising.
  • Embed take positive action to make welcome and inclusion part of the values of your organisation or community, to support sanctuary seekers and refugees, and to include them in your activities.
  • Share your vision and achievements; let others know about the positive contribution refugees make to our society and the benefits of a welcoming culture to everyone.

The group meets at least twice a year and anyone is invited.  If you wish to join the group email us 

  • If you are interested in joining the meeting email us.  We will be happy to welcome you.
