Community Sponsorship for Refugees – Update

On Thursday 28th June, Carol Hill (Director of Catholic Care) attended the National Community Sponsorship Co-ordination Group meeting. The news is very encouraging indeed as the swell of enthusiasm for Community Sponsorship increases AND the Catholic Church is the dominant player. There are now 38 Catholic Groups who have formally begun the process to become a Community Sponsor.
Community Sponsorship is a unique opportunity for communities to welcome and re-settle refugee families, putting local parish communities at the heart of a family’s journey to a new life, helping them to rebuild their lives.

If you and/or your parish is interested in becoming a Community Sponsor, please contact either:
