We hold strong values of inclusivity, collaboration and transparency.

These values guide our aims and our decision-making.

We aim to give a warm welcome to refugees and asylum seekers in Chichester, and provide support wherever we can.

We aim to publicise and celebrate the contribution that refugees and asylum-seekers make to our local community and to UK society and culture.

We aim to encourage our communities and local organisations to welcome and support refugees and asylum seekers.

We aim to challenge any hostility and discrimination against refugees and asylum-seekers.

Finally, we’re encouraging Chichester to make a public commitment to become a place of welcome and safety by adopting the title ‘City of Sanctuary’.
