Our guiding principles are:

  1. To bring together relevant groups and agencies to work in partnership towards creating Derry/Londonderry as a City of Sanctuary.
  2. To create a place where everyone is welcome, everyone feels safe and accepted.
  3. To recognise and value all people from different community, religious, ethnic and cultural backgrounds who already live here or come to visit.
  4. To challenge hostility towards those who have come to seek sanctuary and to challenge the expulsion of local people from the City.
