For Sheffield to be a place of safety and welcome for people seeking sanctuary
- To create safe, welcoming spaces for people seeking sanctuary
Safe and welcoming spaces transcend the unjust constraints placed on people seeking sanctuary. We facilitate and encourage safe and welcoming spaces across the city that provide relief from oppression and are a challenge to the current system of asylum. We do this by starting at The Sanctuary and the Drop In and expanding outwards.
- To work in solidarity with people seeking sanctuary to promote their safety and wellbeing
Safety and wellbeing are a right of everyone. We provide people seeking sanctuary with greater access to networks of support to exercise their agency and find safety. We do this through providing our own services and by facilitating the services of others. We do this work in solidarity with each other.
- To strengthen, develop and diversify the movement for the rights of people seeking sanctuary in Sheffield
Amplifying the voices of people seeking sanctuary and developing strong working partnerships across the movement are vital to our success. We facilitate the development of the movement across the city and support people seeking sanctuary oppressed by systematic injustices to have their voices heard. We are a trusted and skilled organisation in the city and use our position to defend the rights of people seeking sanctuary.
