Cork City of Sanctuary Movement, which is made up of all the city stakeholders including many New Communities representatives, is strategically led by Cork City Council. The movement has been working on implementing a Plan of Action since July 2018 and this Plan     The plan is being implemented through sub-groups, which are led by a very different range of leaders, and include themes such as Arts and Culture, Further and Third Level Education, Advocacy, Primary and Secondary Schools, Children and Youth, Women, Research and other.
