Spaces of Sanctuary


Refuge or safety from pursuit, persecution, or other danger.

The photographs in this collection tell of how women have sought sanctuary in the UK after fleeing from trafficking, rape, child marriage and other attacks on their rights.

All women – whoever they are, wherever they come from – have the right to safe, respectful and dignified care in pregnancy and birth. Our government has promised this on the world stage.

Yet in England, Home Office policies and NHS regulations mean that women’s rights are being systematically violated, putting refugee and migrant mothers and their newborns at risk.
