UK GOVERNMENT COMMITTED

TO WELCOME

20,000 REFUGEES

OVER A 5 YEAR PERIOD

HOW IT WORKS

 In response to the Refugee Crisis the UK Government committed to welcome   20,000 Refugees in to the UK over a 5 year period, welcoming families   directly from the Refugee Camps around Syria. Families can come in through local Councils or can be welcomed and supported by community groups through the Community Sponsorship scheme. 

 The first family to arrive under this scheme were welcomed in to Lambeth   Palace by the Archbishop of Canterbury and many of the groups now making   applications are Churches who see this as a very practical way of demonstrating their faith. 

COMMUNITY SPONSORSHIP

Under Community Sponsorship groups must make an application to the Home Office and get approval from their local Council.

 

They must be a registered Charity

 

We are!

 

Have a minimum of £9,000 in the bank

To demonstrate their ability to offer the family some financial support when they arrive

Although the family will have recourse to public funds.

APPLICATION

The application must demonstrate our ability to welcome and support a family across a number of areas including: 

Accommodation and the ability to furnish and equip a home. 

Welcome and a plan to help the family integrate in to the local community.

 

Translation services until the family are able to learn English.   

English language support. 

Support with accessing benefits and, further down the line, employment. 

Health, education and spiritual support.
