As a resident of Manchester, I am committed to this city being a place of welcome, inclusion, and possibility for those coming to seek sanctuary in the UK.

I recognise the positive contribution made to our communities by those given the chance to rebuild their lives, and look forward to involving them in our activities and life as a city.
