Our mission is to welcome asylum seekers and refugees in and around Leicester, and support them to rebuild their lives, develop their skills and feel part of the community.
We offer a range of vital services and wider enrichment opportunities to asylum seekers and refugees: a central Hub with welcome, support services and a hot meal; ESOL classes; a football session; sewing & IT classes. Our services run five days a week, supporting around 150 people each week. Services are delivered by a team of volunteers. Our service users are the lifeblood of the charity and we could not run it without their help. More than half the volunteer team running the drop-in at the Hub are asylum seekers themselves.
Covid-19: Whilst we're not running any face to face services right now, Leicester City of Sanctuary continues to engage and support Asylum Seekers in Leicester in all sorts of ways. If you'd like to hear a little more please click here
