Glasgow is a city that is proud to host refugees and people in the asylum process. As a significant dispersal city, the only one in Scotland, it has an established and varied array of grassroots groups and Third Sector organisations working with people seeking sanctuary.

If you would like to develop City of Sanctuary activities in Glasgow, please contact the Scotland Coordinator, Gün Orgun, at [email protected]

City of Sanctuary is a network that supports a movement spread throughout the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland, committed to building a culture of hospitality and welcome, especially for refugees seeking sanctuary from war and persecution. We support the development of a network of groups, which includes villages, towns, cities and regions across the UK, and others engaged in Streams of SanctuarySanctuary Awards and activities intended to welcome people seeking sanctuary.
