Why Become a Lead Sponsor?

Becoming a Lead Sponsor gives organisations the opportunity to strengthen ties in communities, bring people together and provide a warm welcome for refugees.

Community Sponsorship groups rely on Lead Sponsors to support and guide them as they welcome a refugee family. Lead Sponsors play a pivotal role in enabling communities to support and welcome refugees.

Charities and Community Interest Companies (CICs) of all shapes and sizes have stepped up to act as Lead Sponsors for Community Sponsorship groups. Many Lead Sponsor organisations are rooted in communities and find that the opportunity to support local groups is tremendously rewarding. 

Read our Lead Sponsor stories to learn more from three existing Lead Sponsor organisations.

If you think your organisation might be interested in becoming a Lead Sponsor, please download and read our leaflet, then get in touch for a chat with our team.

Please share this leaflet with your organisation, trustees of local charities, or other local bodies that you think might be interested in becoming a Lead Sponsor.
