Here are the steps to getting a family resettled in Ripon
The time between Step 1, when we first form our group (April 2021) and Step 8, when we welcome the family, is likely to be between 12 and 18 months.
Types of Community Sponsorship approval that can be granted:
1 – Final approval
We get final approval when we’ve demonstrated that we’ve met all of the criteria.
2 – Approval in principle
However, to give us time to raise the £9,000, and to avoid housing sitting empty, we could also apply to receive approval in principle (with conditions). This allows our application to be approved against most of the criteria, giving us certainty that, if we can meet the financial resources and housing criteria at the end of the process, we’ll receive final approval.
