Is the community sponsorship scheme adding to the numbers of refugees coming to the UK?

A:

When the scheme was introduced, sponsored refugee families were not in addition to the resettlement number already pledged by the government.

However, in June 2019, we won our campaign to #ExtendtheWelcome, and the government agreed that in the new resettlement scheme, families who are resettled through community sponsorship will be counted in addition to government resettlement numbers.
