Welcome to Calderdale Valley of Sanctuary

We are part of the City of Sanctuary movement. We take pride in offering a place of safety for refugees seeking sanctuary from war and persecution and celebrate the contribution of refugees and people seeking asylum to our beautiful borough!

Calderdale Valley of Sanctuary is part of the City of Sanctuary movement to build a culture of welcome for refugees and people seeking asylum.

We are working to make Calderdale a place that takes pride in the welcome it offers to people in need of safety, and that enables people seeking sanctuary to integrate and contribute fully to the life of our communities. We work through partnerships with statutory, voluntary, business and community groups to create, facilitate and support networks across the valley.

We are made up of 144 individual supporters, 50 organisational members – and counting.
