Building a culture of hospitality for people seeking sanctuary

Our vision is that Bournemouth and Poole will be a welcoming place of safety for all and proud to offer sanctuary to people fleeing violence and persecution.

We aim to achieve this by:

  • Enabling individuals and organisations to support refugees and asylum seekers to settle and integrate with the local community.
  • Celebrating the contribution of refugees and asylum seekers to our local community, and to UK.
  • Advocating for policies that have a positive impact on the lives of refugees and asylum seekers.
