City of Sanctuary Sheffield Secures Tudor Trust Funding

We are delighted to have secured £126K of funding over three years from the Tudor Trust.  We will be using this long-term funding to develop our advocacy and communications work and to strengthen our Expert by Experience team.

The trustees of the Tudor Trust:

noted the thoughtfulness of your organisation and felt you were asking for the right thing at the right moment. They also commented on your lovely space.
They also:
felt very positive about funding and noted you have been on a really important journey during lockdown (delivering a massive amount of direct, practical support whilst also looking at the need to challenge the systems that create such a hostile environment for people seeking sanctuary both at a local and national level). They appreciated the embedding of anti-oppression thinking throughout the organisation and how you make sure that people with lived experience of seeking sanctuary are properly supported to get involved in the running of the organisation either as volunteers, in the experts by experience team or at trustee level.

We are delighted to have such a progressive and thoughtful funder on board and look forward to collaborating with the Tudor Trust to improve the rights of all people seeking sanctuary in Sheffield.
