Introduction to this survey

Southwark Borough of Sanctuary is a local community campaign working to make Southwark a recognised ‘Borough of Sanctuary’ that proudly welcomes refugees, asylum seekers and migrants. We are part of the national City of Sanctuary movement to create a network of UK towns and cities that are proud to be places of safety and inclusion.

In 2019, Lewisham Migration Forum (LMF) held community consultations as part of a ‘listening exercise’ to get ideas on what 'sanctuary' means and what needs to happen for Lewisham to be a borough of sanctuary. We are grateful to LMF for sharing their resources so a similar listening exercise can take place in Southwark.

This survey will take 7-10 minutes of your time and is anonymous. You do not need to provide your contact details to respond, but if you would like to be involved in the Southwark Borough of Sanctuary campaign, please provide your contact details at the end of the survey. 

The survey is open until Friday 24 April, 2020.

We will summarise the responses and ideas shared through this survey and Southwark listening exercise consultations in a public report. Your responses will help us define the concrete steps needed to make Southwark a borough of sanctuary.
