A Further Education (FE) College of Sanctuary is a college that is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for all, especially those seeking sanctuary. A College of Sanctuary is a FE college 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 college community. It is a college that is proud to be a place of safety and inclusion for all.
Further Education Colleges are often central institutions in a community and therefore are well placed to make a difference locally. As centres of learning they can lead by example, offer support and education to people seeking sanctuary, and contribute to a culture of welcome in their town or city.
