Canterbury City Council

"Canterbury City Council are working in close partnership with Canterbury Welcomes Refugees and the resettled families are benefiting from this. We have worked together to provide needs-led ESOL provision, to supplement sessions run by Kent Adult Education. We collaborate on initiatives, police and risk assessments and this has led to really consistent approach for all the families. As a council we have benefitted from the expertise and skills of the volunteers that CWR recruits and they are generous in supporting council resettled families in addition to their own."

Mole Valley

"In Mole Valley we are delighted at how well the Community Sponsorship arrangement has worked. The family have truly benefitted from the support given and arranged by our local Community Sponsor. A definite success story."

Mole Valley District Council

Merton Borough Council

"A key factor for us has been that the Salvation Army is housing the family for two years in a property it owns. Merton London Borough Council does not participate in the VPRS programme for local authorities because of the pressures on social housing, but the community sponsorship scheme has helped us to find a housing solution."

Ceredigion County Council

"Community Sponsorship brings together friends, faith groups, colleagues or neighbours. These sponsor groups deepen and broaden their social ties through the course of sponsorship, creating more resilient communities and boosting individual wellbeing."
