Refugee Week 2023 17th -25th June.
Welcome to Preston City of Sanctuary!
We are part of a national movement dedicated to build a culture of welcome for people seeking sanctuary in the UK. Our aim is to create a network of people and organisations right across the city, united in making our city more welcoming, open and fair for all, by creating platform for collaboration, dialogue and mutual opportunities.
Here in Preston we have built a network of volunteers, professionals, statutory, voluntary and faith organisations, together with asylum seekers and refugees living in our city. We are committed to supporting the new citizens and our multicultural communities with the two-way integration process. We hold open meetings of the whole network and other events and celebrations from time to time.
The US is a film about all of us when circumstances lead us to leave our country because it is not safe, and we must find the bright side in every experience. Well done everyone involved in this movie, great efforts.
For a general introduction to some of the issues and stories please watch this now somewhat dated video.
