As part of this year’s Refugee Week (17th to 23rd June), Helen Hayes MP is hosting an event at the House of Commons to promote Community Sponsorship of Refugees among her fellow parliamentarians.
The event will also call for resettlement of refugees to be extended beyond 2020 as part of the #ExtendtheWelcome campaign and for more refugees to receive a warm welcome in our communities. The event is led by, and all speakers will be, refugees.
Anyone connected to Community Sponsorship groups or interested in the scheme is welcome to attend.
