About Us

Barnsley Borough City of Sanctuary was launched on 15th April 2015 at Barnsley Town Hall. It is part of a national movement to build a culture of welcome for people seeking sanctuary in the UK. We work with Barnsley Council and other partners.

Our open steering group meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 5pm usually at Barnsley Town Hall – the next meeting is on Wednesday 6th September 2023.

New members and visitors are always welcome.
