What is Schools of
Sanctuary?

DCU, Dublin.

A School of Sanctuary is a school that helps its students, staff and wider community understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary and to extend a welcome to everyone as equal, valued members of the school community. It is a school that is proud to be a place of safety and inclusion for all.

Many schools on the island of Ireland have already become Schools of Sanctuary, and we hope many more will get involved soon.

If you are interested in exploring how your school can become a School of Sanctuary, useful resources including case studies can be found on the Schools of Sanctuary website.

If you would like to know more about getting the programme
started, please get in touch through the contact page.
