Your regional or national Strategic Migration Partnership can assist you too, with Community Sponsorship taking place in every nation and region in the UK, experience is increasing and knowledge is being shared.
As a Local Authority, when a family is welcomed through Community Sponsorship, you are able to claim funds to support the children's education from the Home Office. Your Local Health Board or Clinical Commissioning Groups can claim for healthcare costs for each family member.

Connect with other Local Authorities: We can connect you with other Local Authorities who have resettled families through Community Sponsorship.
Share best practice on giving consent: We can share best practice and provide template letters for Local Authorities on request so that you can see what others have done.
Advice on funding: We can advise you on what funding is available for you when a Community Sponsorship group resettles refugees and how to access it.
