The King’s Sanctuary Programme was formed in 2015 in response to the global issue of forced displacement, which affects more than 80 million people worldwide. The programme aims to initiate and lead on projects that create positive opportunities for young people whose education has been disrupted due to being displaced.

The Sanctuary Programme includes a range of projects, including the Partnership for Digital Learning and Increased Access (PADILEIA), Sanctuary Scholarships and the King's refugee community sponsorship scheme. The programme also aims to enhance understanding of forced migration among staff and students at King’s and to develop opportunities for them to make a positive contribution.

At its heart, the Sanctuary Programme represents our commitment to serving society and making the world a better place.
