Working with City of Sanctuary

"The City of Sanctuary sessions have offered parents with small children the opportunity to engage with some of the brilliant things that the museum has on offer. For most of the people we have been working with it is the first time they have visited a museum in the UK, with many of them not knowing beforehand that the museum is there, is free and is for everyone to enjoy.

The children have all had a great time with so many different activities on offer and to see this, alongside their parents happiness watching the children explore, learn and play has been really special.

For me, this has been a brilliant example of the difference that can be made when organisations are open and creative about making places welcoming for people who are seeking sanctuary in Newcastle"
