Community Sponsorship in the UK - January 2021
2021 here we come! As far as starts to the new year go, it's fair to say that this one was not the best. But the third national lockdown has not stopped Community Sponsorship Groups! More than 10 Groups across the country are getting ready to welcome the first refugees to arrive in the UK since March last year, while new Groups continue to form across the UK.
If you want to get involved in your local Community Sponsorship Group, get in touch and we'll connect you. And if you're already in a Community Sponsorship Group and would like to be connected with other Groups in your area, let us know and we'll happily introduce you.
Here's a map showing the locations of all Community Sponsorship Groups as of mid-January 2021. This includes Groups who are just getting started right through to Groups who have already welcomed refugee families.
So which region is leading our Community Sponsorship table? Which region has set up the most Community Sponsorship Groups relative to its population?
Currently the Top 3 are:
1. South West
There haven't been any changes to our top 3 regions this month, but the South West is pulling further away from London, which in turn is slightly extending its lead over Wales. Check back in February for our next update!
