Resolution of Support
We support the initiative to make Southwark a recognised ‘Borough of Sanctuary’, welcoming those fleeing persecution, conflict, violence and disasters in their home countries. We recognise the positive contribution of refugees and people seeking sanctuary to the UK. We are committed to taking practical steps towards welcoming and including them in our activities, and are seeking ways of supporting them wherever we can. We are willing for our name to be added to a list of supporters of City of Sanctuary. We are also willing to be contacted by the Southwark Borough of Sanctuary group with further ideas of how we can translate this resolution into practical action.
