The Sanctuary

***Note that The Sanctuary is currently closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Go the Migrant Covid Support Group.***

The Sanctuary on Chapel Walk is a place where you can go for information, advice and support. It is somewhere you can feel safe, whatever your race, religion, sexuality, status, political opinion or mental or physical ability.

The Sanctuary is managed by City of Sanctuary, Sheffield. It is an open door through which you can come to chat, meet local people, use a computer, have a cup of tea, read the paper, or simply sit and keep warm.

For opening hours please go to the City of Sanctuary website.

The Asylum Journey

The Asylum Journey website is designed for use by organisations that work with asylum seekers and refugees, not the asylum seekers and refugees themselves. But if your English is good and you have some IT skills, you could use it yourself. 

Whatever stage of the asylum process you are at, the Asylum Journey website will tell you where to get support. It provides a range of information and advice about the services and resources available to asylum seekers and refugees in Sheffield, including...

  • legal advice
  • financial support
  • health and social care
  • housing and accommodation
  • places to spend time and meet people
