Building a culture of hospitality for people seeking sanctuary

Bournemouth and Poole City of Sanctuary aims to:

Work with public, private and voluntary organisations in Bournemouth and Poole to make it a welcoming city for all and in particular for Refugees and Asylum Seekers.

Celebrate the contribution of Asylum Seekers and Refugees to their local communities, and to UK society and culture, and to challenge hostility and discrimination against them.

Encourage and support the Local Authorities of Bournemouth and Poole to participate in the Syrian Vulnerable Person Resettlement (VPR) Programme.
