By pledging your support you promise to make Bournemouth and Poole into a recognised ‘City of Sanctuary’, welcoming those fleeing violence and persecution in their own countries. We recognise the contribution of refugees and people seeking sanctuary to Bournemouth and Poole. We are committed to taking practical steps to welcome and include them in our activities and are actively seeking ways of supporting them wherever we can. We are willing for our organisation’s name to be added to a list of supporters of City of Sanctuary. We are also willing to be contacted by the City of Sanctuary – Bournemouth and Poole group with further ideas for how we can turn this pledge into practical action.
