How are refugees selected for the Community Sponsorship programme?

Refugees that are resettled via Community Sponsorship are selected through either the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme (VPRS) or the Vulnerable Children’s Resettlement Scheme (VCRS). The refugees on these schemes are referred to the Home Office by the UN's refugee agency, UNHCR, due to their vulnerability. The UK Home Office then considers and screens each case that UNHCR submits. Reset is not involved in the selection process.

Please note that it is not possible for you to ask Home Office to select particular individuals to be resettled via Community Sponsorship. You can find information about family reunification here
