Story

Help us Provide a Nidderdale Community Welcome

The UK Government’s Community Sponsorship Scheme allows ordinary people to welcome a refugee family to live in their community, and support them to integrate. Every time a group commits to Community Sponsorship, another vulnerable refugee family gets the opportunity to rebuild their lives in the UK.

We need to raise £9000 to be accepted onto this scheme and matched with a family from the thousands currently waiting in refugee camps. The funds will be used for initial costs such as house rental deposit, any furniture or equipment needed; perhaps for training courses, school uniforms or anything else to get our family set up. As United Nations and UK Government recognised refugees, our family will be entitled to work and to access benefits, health and education services. Our role is to support them to become independent – not to support them for ever – but we all know how difficult, costly and confusing moving to a new area can be. Imagine how much more so for a refugee family making a completely new start.

Please help us raise the funds we need to get this project off the ground in 2021
