Norwich City of Sanctuary is part of a national movement building a culture of welcome for refugees and asylum-seekers, many of whom have lost their homes, fled persecution, and now seek safety here.

Norwich has a long history of being a place of sanctuary to those seeking safety. We want to celebrate the contribution refugees make and to continue to extend a hand of welcome to those arriving today. 

An amazing network of charities support refugees and asylum seekers in Norwich. We work with them and encourage sectors from across the city to get involved with our movement.
