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

Community Sponsorship has brought us together. Lots of people from different areas have come together with a common cause. It has brought together the goodness that is still around in the world. Even though we look upon the world at the moment as a dark place. You only have to scratch the surface and you will find there is far more goodness than badness and far more light than darkness.
