South Manchester Sanctuary

We are proudly raising money to support Student Life at Western Sydney University.

People fleeing war and persecution undertake unimaginably arduous and dangerous journeys to seek protection for themselves and their families. They deserve a safe haven, a warm welcome and an opportunity to rebuild their lives. But sadly what they often encounter when they reach Europe and the UK is further danger, hostility, prejudice and a slow, cruel, and arcane asylum process. Community Sponsorship is a practical way to make a real difference, providing a safe route for a refugee family to resettle in the UK. WHO ARE WE, AND WHAT ARE WE DOING? We're a group of concerned people who live and/or work in South Manchester, predominantly Hulme & Chorlton. We have committed to support a refugee family to resettle in our local area. This is part of a wider Community Sponsorship scheme, established by the Home Office. Read more here: As part of our commitment, we need to: - Raise £11,000. Please give what you can! - Find a home in South Manchester rented at, or close to the cost of housing benefits - Support their transition to life in the UK. Please help us welcome a family to South Manchester! (If you're interested in volunteering with the group please email Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving pages.
