Portsmouth City of Sanctuary (PCoS)

Portsmouth is a city proud to offer safety and sanctuary to anyone fleeing violence and persecution and to those who are at risk and isolated. With dignity and compassion we welcome all people in need, and we do so as part of a national, non-political or religious City of Sanctuary movement. Around 160 local organisations have thus far come together to form Portsmouth City of Sanctuary (PCoS), connecting and delivering a network of important projects and services, to offer support to vulnerable groups and individuals in the community.

Our AGM 

Please note, our Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday 17th January 2022 at 1pm. Due to COVID regulations, the meeting may be held online via ZOOM. Please email us for further details to attend.

Like many of our partners PCoS is very concerned about key elements of HMG’s proposed Nationality and Borders Bill. We urge all humanitarians to advocate for dignity and compassion when it comes to judging sanctuary seekers needing our protection (Malcolm Little, Chair PCoS)
