Members and Pledged Supporters

During our last AGM, we agreed to split our supporters into two: Members and Pledged Supporters.

We are currently in the process of updating our lists, so please help us by letting us know if we need to change the contact information. If you have not done so already, this is also the opportunity to choose to be a Member or a Pledged Supporter. To see a full breakdown of the difference between these roles, click here. Below is a short overview.


  • Have a say in how Swansea City of Sanctuary works by voting at the AGM and other members’ meetings
  • Can nominate candidates to be Trustees on our Management Committee

Pledged Supporters:

  • Publicly support the Swansea City of Sanctuary vision
  • Do not have a vote during AGM or member meetings

Both of the above will receive regular updates from Swansea City of Sanctuary, and are incredibly valuable to our organisation. We are what our supporters do.

If you’d like to register yourself or your organisation as a Member or Pledged Supporter of Swansea City of Sanctuary, or need to update your contact details, please email us at [email protected].



We look forward to seeing you at our meeting, and hearing your ideas!

“We are what our supporters do”
