Community sponsorship is a powerful way to make a difference, enabling a group of volunteers to bring a refugee family to safety here in Britain.

Community Sponsorship is a UK government scheme which enables any well-prepared local group to resettle a refugee family within their local community. The group does all the groundwork in advance, and then commits to providing support for 1 year. RCoS launched our project on 7 April 2021, and we’d love to have your support! Feel free to email us or join our dedicated Facebook group.

Somewhere out there, right now, is the family we will bring to Ripon.

If you’d like to donate and help bring a family to Ripon, there are one-off and monthly options.
