Swindon City of Sanctuary.

Building a culture of welcome, inclusion and support for all in Swindon.

Swindon City of Sanctuary seek to build a culture of welcome, inclusion and support for all in Swindon, with a focus on people who are seeking sanctuary from war and persecution. Our work focuses on celebrating our diverse town: we do this by bringing people and organisations together, raising awareness and campaigning for fairness and inclusivity.

We hold weekly and fortnightly events for anyone in Swindon who wants to attend. ‘We’re Open’ is a weekly evening social, every Thursday evening 6.30pm to 8.30pm at the Bakers Cafe. Join us for conversation and a hot drink.
