Cardiff City of Sanctuary

On 5th June 2014 Cardiff became the seventh UK city to officially be recognised as a ‘City of Sanctuary’. To receive this accolade, Cardiff had to demonstrate that it is a city that welcomes new arrivals seeking a safe place to live after fleeing war or persecution.

Cardiff is now on its way to further develop as a city where:

  • people’s culture, skills and differences are accepted as a positive complement to Cardiff as a city
  • there is a shared commitment and a service infrastructure that facilitates an environment of sanctuary
  • there is a culture of welcome that creates relationships, community cohesion and inclusion

Asylum Justice is proud to have pledged its full support to Cardiff City of Sanctuary.
