UPDATES

We were delighted to receive full approval from the Home Office in April 2019.  We are the first Community Sponsorship group in Surrey to receive approval.  We have been matched with a family of five with three small children and they are due to arrive in the middle of June. Thank you to everyone for their prayers and support so far and all those who have offered their time and skills to support the family when they arrive. 

PLANNING UPDATE:

RE-SETTLEMENT PLAN  & COUNCIL APPROVAL

The re-settlement plan has been approved by Mole Valley and Surrey County Councils. 

PROPERTY

A property has been purchased by a sympathetic supporter.   ACCT have helped them manage renovations and the property is now ready to receive a family. 

FORMAL APPLICATION TO THE HOME OFFICE

Following the pre-approval meeting with the Home Office in February 2019 we have now been fully approved as a Community Sponsorship Group 

VOLUNTEERS AND TRAINING

The Core Group have received training and have attended a number of courses.  We have more training booked in 2019. 

WHAT WE NEED:

MONTHLY PLEDGES TO TOP UP THE RENT 

The family arriving here will be subject to the benefits cap which is deducted from their rent allowance. We are looking for people to offer a monthly donation of £5, £10, or whatever you can offer towards supporting the family.  We will need to top up their rent by approx. £350 per month for the 2 years they are living here.  We anticipate their arrival around January 2019.  Once the family are in a position to work then this monthly commitment should be reduced.

SHOPPING LIST FOR THE PROPERTY 

Once we get more details about the family that will be coming to Ashtead we intend to put together a shopping list of items needed for the home. 

ARABIC SPEAKERS

We have a few Arabic speakers but need one or two more who may be able to support the family when they first arrive and until they master the basics of English.

VOLUNTEERS TO WORK WITH THE FAMILY 

We are looking for one or two people who may be able to offer support to the family when they first arrive.  If you are free during the week and have an interest in offering some support then please let us know.
