Leicester Sanctuary Group



In November 2018 Leicester Meeting decided to become a Meeting of Sanctuary.  As a meeting we committed to acting in solidarity with newcomers to Britain by helping to build a culture of welcome, opposing racism and working with others to change the law on destitution, detention, deportations and removals. 

We work closely with two local groups who support people in the asylum system:  Leicester City of Sanctuary and the Leicester branch of the Red Cross. Leicester Area Meeting donates money equally to these two groups to help them in their work.
