Support with funds

If funds are an issue, but your group could otherwise take on the commitments of being a sponsor, Sponsor Refugees may be able to help. We could link you to people or groups who can’t give the time to sponsoring, but could help financially. Contact

Intermediate support while setting up a bank account

You may want to start fundraising immediately, but do not yet have a dedicated bank account. To help you get started, you can fundraise through our on-line page. We can ringfence your funds and transfer them to you as soon as you have a bank account. Contact us to arrange this.

The government requires you to show that you have £9,000 in a ringfenced account. It may be that once you budget, you feel you will need more money than that – in London, we recommend that you aim for £12,000 due to the high costs of living.

We recommend that fundraising is an early task, because organising fundraising events and activities is a great way for your group to bond. There are many ways of raising funds these days and most sponsoring groups enjoy the process.
