Exeter City of Sanctuary is part of a National City of Sanctuary grassroots movement. Our vision is for Exeter to become a genuine City of Sanctuary where all sections of the community are involved in helping to create a culture of warm welcome, safety and opportunity for asylum seekers and refugees. Welcoming refugees offers us too an opportunity to celebrate diversity and the contribution they make to the life of our city.

We aim to raise awareness of some of the realities and challenges facing refugees and asylum seekers through talks, workshops, events and social media.We also hope through our advocacy and campaigning work to influence the community, local and national policy makers to take the needs, rights and voices of ASRs into account. Partnership however is essential to the success of ExCoS. We work very closely with Refugee Support Devon and are seeking to work with other organisations, non-profit community groups and individuals in Exeter. Whether you are involved in education, the arts, leisure, buisness or a faith group we would love for your organisation and people in or near the city to pledge their support for refugees and asylum seekers.(Pledge your support here)  Please do contact us with any questions you have or if you wish to register your interest or volunteer with us.       Latest News below
