Who we are

We are a new and emerging group with a vision that St Albans district will be a welcoming place of safety for all and proud to offer sanctuary to people fleeing violence and persecution.

The three founding members of the group are Irene Austin, Judy Jacques and Jagat Chatrath – all long-term residents of St Albans. We are members of the City of Sanctuary UK network.

Our vision, mission and values can be found in the City of Sanctuary Charter UK.

Our launch partners are St Albans Amnesty Group and Herts Welcomes Refugees. We work and cooperate with local community groups, other sanctuary groups and our District Council.

We welcome you to join us by pledging your support here.
