Community Sponsorship in London
Bringing together Community Sponsorship Groups in London to launch a breaking barriers plan for London-based Community Sponsorship Groups
The Greater London Authority is delighted to invite you to the launch of our Community Sponsorship London events. Through these events Community Sponsorship Groups from across the City will come together with key stakeholders and pioneers from a range of backgrounds to find solutions to the challenges faced by newly resettled refugees and those who welcome them.
Community Sponsorship empowers groups of ordinary people to support a refugee family as they integrate into their new community in the UK. Community Sponsorship enables refugees to build a new life, but also benefits those who support the. Sponsors can learn about another culture, strengthen community ties, and find fulfilment in making a difference to those who have been forced to flee their homes and families. Nearly everyone is qualified to support a refugee in their community. All they need are life skills and experiences, and the time and enthusiasm to share them. Almost 400 refugees have been resettled through the Community Sponsorship programme since 2016, and this number is and will increase.
Join us on 23 January 2020 at London’s Living room, City Hall, The Queen's Walk, London SE1 2AA to find out more about how you can help.
