    Reading City of Sanctuary invites you to their interfaith communal event to talk about how faith communities are putting “faith into action” to ensure that Reading remains a welcoming place.

    Refugees, asylum seekers fleeing persecution and violence and some vulnerable migrants are welcomed and supported to engage, feel safe and become part of the Reading Host Society. A Call to Action based on the needs identified by support agencies in Reading:
    -What can you do to make them feel welcome and safe in Reading?
    -What practical action can you take to help facilitate their integration?

    City of Sanctuary is a national movement to a build a culture of hospitality for people seeking sanctuary in the UK. Its goal is to create a network of towns and cities throughout the UK which are proud to be places of safety, and which include people seeking sanctuary fully in the life of their communities.
