Community Sponsorship is a programme enabling you to welcome a refugee family into your local area and support them as they rebuild their lives here in the UK.

You’ll be offering a family a safe and legal route to resettlement which they would not be able to access without Community Sponsorship. It’s a practical response to the mass displacement of people across the world due to war and persecution.

Community Sponsorship gives you the power to change lives for the better. Find out more.

Your experiences of Community Sponsorship

I've been really struck on how successful Community Sponsorship has been and how we want to grow it. Some of the most successful schemes that we have seen and indeed some of the individuals that I've met personally have been through the Community Sponsorship scheme and have found it to be the most supportive way to get the help into employment, getting their children into schools, and just help integrating into the community. It's been a brilliant success so far and the Home Office wants to grow it.
