We have been gaining a sense of what needs to change in Greenwich to make it a safe and welcoming place for everyone, regardless of their background.

Greenwich Listens

From April to July 2021, we listened to over 100 people to understand how to make Greenwich into a Borough of Sanctuary. We listened to residents, organisations, and people from migrant backgrounds to understand what issues meant the most to them.

Greenwich Solutions Workshops

Over the past few months, we have been running workshops honing in on issues with those who contributed to the listening, co-producing solutions and meeting as a community network. We have been exploring issues related to accessing healthcare, housing conditions, and communication with services and local authorities, and access to ESOL classes.

Next steps 

We have now co-written our report with Greenwich University detailing the results of our listening and offering recommendations for Greenwich to become a safer place for people from sanctuary seeking families.
