Peckham Sponsors Refugees

Are you one of the many people in Britain who would like to help people fleeing war and persecution?

Do want to do more than just send a donation to a refugee charity or sign a petition?

Do you feel you, your friends and neighbours could welcome a refugee family into your community, help them settle and build a new life?

Community Sponsorship of Refugees is a new initiative in Britain. But interest in it is growing fast. It is a serious commitment to sponsor a refugee family and people rightly have lots of questions before they even think of setting off down this path. We won’t be able to answer all your detailed queries here. But we hope the answers below address some off the main questions you may have. On other sections of this site you can find more detailed information.
