Safe Haven or Storm

Safe Haven or Storm

On the 13th June 2014, 120 people representing more than 60 organisations came together to reflect on how we are responding to the pledge we have made to be a City of Sanctuary for asylum seekers and refugees.  It was a moving and inspiring day – more than 70 individual pledges of action have been made as a result. During the event two talented artists created this set of visual minutes representing the speakers and their respective topics:


Our final report on the event is well worth reading. There are also some pictures available.

Here are some resources from the day – you can use them to support your organisation, and your communities, to understand the needs of asylum seekers and refugees and take action to support them. If you would like us to add a link to support that you offer or know of please let us have the details.

And some quick tools we used on the day that you can download and pass on
