Town of Sanctuary

Eastgate Chambers is proud to be a Supporting Organisation of City of Sanctuary UK.

City of Sanctuary UK holds the vision that our nations will be welcoming places of safety for all and proud to offer sanctuary to people fleeing violence and persecution. In order to realise this vision, City of Sanctuary UK supports a network of groups, which includes villages, towns, cities and regions across the UK, and others engaged in Streams of Sanctuary, Sanctuary Awards  and activities intended to welcome people seeking sanctuary.

Eastgate Chambers has signed the City of Sanctuary pledge;

We support the ‘City of Sanctuary’ vision that our nations will be welcoming places of safety for all and proud to offer sanctuary to people fleeing violence and persecution. We recognise the contribution of refugees and people seeking sanctuary to British society. Sanctuary seekers are welcomed, included and supported within our group. We expect our branches to support their local City of Sanctuary group if one exists, and will facilitate contact between them and their local City of Sanctuary group”.

“We are willing for our organisation’s name to be added to a list of supporters of City of Sanctuary, linked to our website. We are also willing to be contacted by City of Sanctuary with further ideas for how we can turn our support into practical action and to discuss ways we might work together to promote the vision further”.
