We are a collective of Community Sponsorship groups all based in the South West. We are all thrilled to be sponsoring refugee families and supporting them in their resettlement here in the UK. We are a new network that hopes to meet 3 or 4 times a year as we recognise that we are stronger together than apart. Together we are building friendships, receiving training, sharing our stories of resettlement, sharing good practice and resources and working together to overcome challenges. Sponsoring a refugee family has transformed us all and we would love to share our journey with you. In addition to our gatherings, we hope to provide a programme of online training through our training portal. We are currently building our programme, so check back for more information soon.
Below are the groups in the South West. We are all at different points in the journey; some have multiple refugee families they are supporting and others are just starting out.
