Education remains one of our key themes.

With the arrival of more refugees and asylum seekers throughout Preston and indeed Lancashire, we feel that we can help by linking up with more institutions to become Schools of Sanctuary, Colleges of Sanctuary and University of Sanctuary.

The outline of the national Schools of Sanctuary programme can be found at https://schools.cityofsanctuary.org/ 

And the reasons for doing so are Here

English Martyrs Primary school was the first school in Preston to receive the award https://www.blogpreston.co.uk/2017/12/a-preston-primary-school-is-the-first-school-of-sanctuary-in-the-city/

In Lancashire the scheme is co-ordinated by The Ethnic Minority, Gypsy, Roma and Traveller Achievement Service at County Hall.
