Community Sponsorship Scheme

A free information event about the Government’s Community Sponsorship Scheme – 15 March.

The issue of refugees and asylum has been one of particular concern for us here in the Diocese. Our Refugee Officer, Domenica Pecoraro has organised a free information event about the Government’s Community Sponsorship Scheme – an initiative which allows faith and community groups to support a Syrian family to settle in the UK.

Taking place on Thursday 15 March 2018, 9.30am to 3.30pm, at St. Pauls Church, Church Street, Canterbury, this will be an opportunity for you to:

  • find out what community sponsorship is and how communities can help resettle refugees
  • hear from leading voices and sponsors in the UK on their experiences
  • get advice from experienced organisations and those involved in the application process
