The Diocesan Refugee Support Group is hosting an information evening on the Community Sponsorship on Wednesday 23 May 2018 at 7 pm at Wheeler Hall, St. Anne’s Street, Leeds LS2 8BE. This scheme is simply a way to welcome and resettle Syrian refugees, putting local parish communities at the heart of a family’s journey to a new life in the UK.
The evening will include information about the scheme, first hand accounts from those who have successfully welcomed families, and first hand accounts from refugees themselves. Representatives from the Home Office will also be available to talk about their role and to answer any questions.
If you are interested in finding out more about welcoming a refugee family into your parish community, please come along.
