Who We Are

Lancaster and Morecambe City of Sanctuary is a collection of volunteer members with the following shared aims:

  • Helping to make it practically possible for Lancaster and Morecambe to accommodate refugees and asylum seekers by providing the relevant support such as housing, health, befriending and English lessons.
  • Acting as a welcome and support network to those refugees who come to Lancaster and Morecambe.
  • Running education activities that educate and inform people about refugees and promote community cohesion.
  • Campaigning to ensure Lancaster and Morecambe does its fair share in providing sanctuary to people fleeing war and persecution.

We are made up of a number of individual volunteers as well as various organisations who support and facilitate our work.

✨ Driver wanted ✨

Just to update you... We have delayed our trip to Calais for a few weeks because we are in need of another driver with car who would be willing to come with us on 20th to 23rd February. Petrol expenses paid!

This is because we have more donations than anticipated which is a great problem to have and more volunteers from Red Rose Refugees. Please email Rebeccajoynovell@gmail.com or WhatsApp 07743997648
