From World Refugee Day on June 20th through to the end of August people in Sheffield will be staging a number of events to highlight the situation of refugees and celebrate all they bring to the city.

Starting with a launch event in Burngreave on Monday June 20th, moving on to the annual ASSIST World Over concert in Sheffield Cathedral on Saturday 25th, you can take part in a range of activities including music, drama and country walks.

Anyone wanting to put on an event can apply for a grant from the city council, and you can keep track of what’s going on by clicking on the ‘Summer of Sanctuary’ tab or logo on this website.
