Who We Are

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


  • To help provide a welcoming place of safety for people fleeing violence and persecution, building a culture of hospitality and inclusiveness within the city.


  • Raising funds to relieve poverty; giving grants to individuals in need and providing welcome packs for all new arrivals.


  • Working with partner organisations to support English lessons; providing bikes and social activities to promote health and well-being.


  • Working with councils, politicians, schools, agencies, local authorities and other organisations to raise awareness of the issues faced by those seeking sanctuary, and facilitating the exchange of information with the general public through the CoS website and Facebook page.
