Become a Place of Sanctuary

Becoming a place of sanctuary is an accredited process, drawing on the experience of sanctuary seekers, and guided by CoS approach of learning about refuge, embedding actions and sharing practices. We can help local organisations to work towards becoming an accredited sanctuary.

Express your organisation’s interest in becoming a place of sanctuary

Whether your organisation is a voluntary group or an established institution, a school or a university, a faith or religious institution, a shop, a cafe, a garden or a theatre; whether your organisation is GP surgery or a hospital, a sports or a youth club - you can work towards becoming an accredited place of sanctuary.

“We are proud of the work that Wandsworth Welcomes Refugees has achieved across the Borough and are excited to engage with more of the community across a range of new projects. I know that people here really care about making the borough a welcoming place for all. We are a friendly team of volunteers, all passionate about achieving positive change in Wandsworth, and really look forward to welcoming new members who share the same vision.”

“Getting involved in Wandsworth Welcomes Refugees was a great decision for me - it has created a real sense of community for me in my area, I’ve met brilliant people, and we’re making a difference. Creating a welcoming and supportive borough for people who have been forced to flee their homes is so important - and there are a lot of people in Wandsworth who care deeply and work hard to achieve this. Join us!”
