Community Sponsorship in the UK - July 2020

16 July 2020

Inspired by the community spirit that has grown in the UK in recent months, new Community Sponsorship Groups are forming to sponsor refugees so that they can reach safety in the UK. 

Here's a map showing the locations of all Community Sponsorship Groups as of mid-July 2020. This includes Groups who are just getting started right through to Groups who have already welcomed refugee families. 

If you want to get involved in your local Community Sponsorship, 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.  


So which region is actually in the lead? Which region has set up the most Community Sponsorship Groups relative to its population? Currently the Top 3 are: 

1. London

2. South West

3. Wales

It's very, very close between London and the South West for top spot, and Wales risks being knocked out of 3rd place by the North West who aren't far behind... check back in August to see how things have moved! 

Community Sponsorship in the UK - July 2020 is also published in Reset UK on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
