Community Sponsorship Awards Hit the Headlines

The first annual Community Sponsorship Awards have received press coverage from national (The Guardian), local (Carrick Times) and faith-based outlets (Church Times, Premier, The Tablet).

The ceremony, held at The Royal Society in London, brought together 250 people, from 140 groups across the UK and special guests from North America. The awards were an opportunity to recognise the achievement of the quiet heroes of sponsorship who have been working hard in their communities to fund-raise, find homes, create language-learning plans, find all the basic essentials a refugee family would need, and plan to ensure that, when they arrive, there is a welcome committee of organised volunteers.
