Reading council pledges to become City of Sanctuary

Reading Borough Council has unanimously agreed to support refugee families into the town.

The motion put to the council read: “This council notes the first three families are now settled in Reading, supported by a range of organisations to help them adjust to their new lives.”

“This council wishes to continue to promote the inclusion and welfare of those coming to Reading to seek sanctuary and resolves to support the Reading City of Sanctuary movement and to spread the sanctuary message of welcome across all sections of the local community.”
