Leeds City of Sanctuary is part of a national movement to build a culture of welcome for people seeking sanctuary in the UK.
In Leeds, we are proud to extend the welcome of our city to people who come here seeking safety. We are committed to making our city a haven for anyone who needs its protection.
With City of Sanctuary, we want to create a network of people and organisations right across the city, united in making our city more welcoming, open and fair for all.
