Wandsworth Welcomes Refugees


WWR committee members #TogetherwithRefugees

“We have far more in common with each other than that which divides us.” - Jo Cox

Wandsworth Welcomes Refugees aims to work with everyone in the community to provide sanctuary to refugees and asylum seekers and to raise awareness of their situations to achieve positive change in Wandsworth and beyond. To achieve this we:

  • Promote and develop Wandsworth Sanctuary and support institutions in gaining Sanctuary status

  • Work with local refugee and asylum seeker charities/support groups, including providing assistance with fundraising, donations, campaigns and volunteer recruitment

  • Build relationships with Wandsworth Council to ensure that adequate housing, fostering and other support is provided for refugees and asylum seekers in the borough

  • Raise awareness of national and international refugee and asylum seeker issues and support charities and campaigns that seek to achieve positive change for these groups in the UK, Europe and beyond.


We are the official City of Sanctuary group for Wandsworth.
