City of Sanctuary Dublin aims to challenge misinformation, dispel stereotypes and myths, and break barriers by bringing people together.

Our goal is to create a network of places and spaces throughout Dublin that are proud to be places of safety and which include people seeking protection by fostering participation in the daily life of their communities.

We work to build coalitions of organisations from all sectors (faith groups, voluntary, business, education, etc) which make a public commitment to welcome and include refugees and people seeking sanctuary in their usual activities. It is our belief, that when organisations, groups and projects include people seeking sanctuary in their activities, personal relationships will be formed which will lead to greater understanding and support.

Our focus is on people who are forced to seek sanctuary but at the same time we intend that the process of working for a culture of hospitality and inclusion will also benefit other migrant groups, as well as host communities.
