Why should I get involved in Community Sponsorship?

Community Sponsorship is special because it mobilises the energy, compassion and expertise of local communities to empower refugees and provide them with all the tools they need to settle into their new lives. Learning English, enrolling your children in school, registering at the GP surgery, finding a job and making friends are all much more manageable when you have a community around you to answer questions, show you round the neighbourhood, accompany you to new appointments, and offer a cup of tea and a shoulder to lean on at the end of the day.  

Embarking on Community Sponsorship also has an amazing impact on communities themselves. We have seen people come together across differences of generation, faith and political opinion to welcome refugees into their local areas. Get involved!
