Resettlement is the term used to describe what happens when a refugee is moved from a host country in which they’ve sought asylum to a country that has the capacity to support them in the long term. Resettlement is a safe route for vulnerable refugees to reach the UK.
Community Sponsorship is a shared endeavour. Individuals who may or may not already know each other form a group and work together to prepare for and welcome a refugee family to their local area. When communities lead the welcome, refugees have the benefit of a local support network right from day one.
The group supports the family through their first year in the UK to live independent lives, learn English, and access schools, benefits, healthcare and employment and participate fully in the community. These groups receive training and support from Reset through every stage of their journey and are also supported by their Lead Sponsor, who takes legal responsibility for the project.
