Swansea City of Sanctuary is part of a national movement which builds a culture of hospitality and welcome, especially for individuals seeking sanctuary from war and persecution.
We work with over 150 organisations, faith groups, institutions, local businesses, schools and individuals to make Swansea a safe, welcoming and hospitable place for those seeking sanctuary.
Swansea City of Sanctuary has a Management Committee which ensures the SCoS movement has a clear sense of direction, makes sure that in the future Swansea will have the people, money and commitment to fulfil our vision.
We also have a great volunteer base, without whom we couldn’t function.
Recently, SCoS has begun working on a brand new Big Lottery Funded project entitled Wales Cities of Sanctuary. The project is managed by Displaced People in Action and sees us working more closely with Cardiff City of Sanctuary. Find out more about the project here.
