Community Sponsorship Awards 2019
We believe that Community Sponsorship of refugees should be celebrated, and that inspirational Groups, individuals and Local Authorities should be recognised for the work they put in to make Community Sponsorship a success. That is why we organise the annual Community Sponsorship Awards.
The awards are also an opportunity to promote the scheme, for people across the UK to build relationships, and to hear motivational stories of welcome.
Meet the Judges
The judges will be meeting on Wednesday 31st May to decide the winners.
Read about our esteemed judges here. Thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate your Community Sponsorship champions. We have received hundreds of submissions, and our judges have a very difficult task ahead!
The winners will be announced on Tuesday 8th October at an Awards Ceremony hosted by our friends at Canada House in Trafalgar Square.
Canada introduced Private Sponsorship of refugees 40 years ago, and have since welcomed over 325,000 refugees. They been instrumental in guiding the UK and other nations as we build our own refugee sponsorship schemes.
