Newcastle upon Tyne is proud to be a welcoming city where people have historically sought sanctuary for many years.

In more recent times, Newcastle was selected as a dispersal area for asylum seekers. Agencies within the city responded through developing projects, networks, and awareness raising initiatives. We are thrilled that, through the work of these projects, many people with leave to remain choose to stay in the city.
