  1. Sanctuary Kirklees is part of the national City of Sanctuary movement aiming to build a culture of hospitality for people seeking sanctuary in the UK.
    Our goal is to create a network of groups and organisations throughout Kirklees which are proud to be places of safety for people seeking sanctuary and helping them integrate into their local communities.

    Sanctuary Kirklees helps create a welcome for people whose lives are in danger in their own countries.

    We run several projects and groups and are always looking for volunteers to support our regular activities - please see website for more information ....

    Our meeting place is flexible, please get in touch if you are interested in coming along.
