The Swansea City of Sanctuary Award
Sanctuary Awards are provided by the networks of local groups and the City of Sanctuary UK to recognise and celebrate organisations’ commitment to values and visions of welcome and inclusivity and enable them to become active participants in the City of Sanctuary Network. Any community group, private organisation, public sector service, or other bodies which contribute towards the vision of welcome can apply for the award!
Unity in Diversity has been given the Swansea City of Sanctuary award in recognition of its work and ongoing commitment to engage with and celebrate the positive contribution of refugees and asylum seekers.
Unity in Diversity activities abide by the values of welcome and inclusivity while providing a safe place in Swansea for refugees and asylum seekers to come, chat and learn. Unity in Diversity provides a home-cooked meal for the attendees with fun activities to participate in, including Arts and Crafts and Taekwondo, and a Beginner or Intermediate English class twice a week.
And thanks to that Unity in Diversity has been granted the Swansea City of Sanctuary Award once again!
