We are a College of Sanctuary

Bradford College is a diverse, welcoming and nurturing college. College of Sanctuary enhance our community colleges message that we’re here to support and transform lives. Committed to being a safe and welcoming place for all, especially those seeking sanctuary. Asylum seekers and refugees are important citizens of our great city adding language, culture and skills to our communities. We are proud to be a college that helps its students, staff and wider community to understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary. We are also immensely proud of the achievements our sanctuary seeking students make.

Our Pledge

“We support the ‘City of Sanctuary’ vision that the UK will be a welcoming place of safety for all and proud to offer sanctuary to people fleeing violence and persecution.

We endorse the City of Sanctuary Charter, and agree to act in accordance with City of Sanctuary values and apply the network principles within our work (as far as our specific context enables us to).

We recognise the contribution of people seeking sanctuary. Sanctuary seekers are welcomed, included and supported within our context. We expect our branches or local groups (if any) to support their local City of Sanctuary group if one exists, and will facilitate contact between them and their local City of Sanctuary group.”

We are willing for our organisation’s name to be added to a list of supporters of City of Sanctuary, linked to our website. We are also willing to be contacted by City of Sanctuary with further ideas for how we can turn our support into practical action and to discuss ways we might work together to promote the vision further.”
