What we do

We train Community Sponsorship volunteers to welcome refugees and support them as they rebuild their lives. 

We'll be with you on every step of your Community Sponsorship journey, from preparing to submit your application to the Home Office, to supporting the refugee family as they settle in to their new community.

We also provide advice and guidance to Local Authorities and Lead Sponsors that are working with Community Sponsorship Groups. 

Community Sponsorship is a government programme and we regularly feed back to the Home Office in order to improve the programme so that it provides the best possible outcomes for refugees and communities in the UK. We also convene the the Community Sponsorship Council to ensure that the views of all organisations and individuals involved in Community Sponsorship are represented to us and to the Home Office. Find out how to raise an issue through the Community Sponsorship Council.
