People who seek sanctuary, fleeing war & persecution, are looking for mercy, safety & a place to contribute. Manchester can be that place - a city of sanctuaryWhy the community needs us
We provide opportunities for people to engage and connect with those around them, helping them feel part of the community. By supporting and promoting positive relationships and integration, we challenge the hostile environment and create a culture of welcome and extend the hand of friendship. We also provide volunteering opportunities to enable integration & enable them to share their skills. Manchester groups & organisation partner with us to offer bike lessons, walking days & English lessonsOur impact on the community
We reduce isolation, loneliness, and fear by turning strangers in to friends and creating ways in which people can connect and share. We help sanctuary seekers to have the opportunity for local friends who can be patient as they learn to communicate and orientate them with firsthand knowledge, tips and local guides to Manchester life.
