Planning your application

This required training session – sometimes referred to as Part 1 Training – is for core group members (these are the people who lead the teams or areas of work on your application) and should be attended in the early stages of your planning, before you have applied to the Home Office.

Planning your application sessions are scheduled once a month as a one-hour session on Zoom. These sessions focus on the refugee resettlement process, engaging local stakeholders and navigating the application process.

We also offer monthly Part 1 PSAP training sessions for groups who have partnered with a Principle Lead Sponsor and wish to apply through the Principle Sponsor Application Process (PSAP).

Getting ready to welcome

In this 2.5hour required training session – sometimes referred to as Part 2 Training – we’ll discuss empowerment, setting boundaries in your support and some of the cultural differences.

We reach out to each group individually to book this online, once your group has full approval and is allocated a family.

Arrival planning

This session is for groups who have submitted their final application to the Home Office and are close to welcoming a family – a chance for you to come along and ask questions regarding your group’s arrival planning.

Core skills training

These online training sessions are run by experts in different core areas of Community Sponsorship support. They are usually run by an expert outside of Community Sponsorship and do not follow a specific schedule.

Past core skills sessions have included training on benefits, volunteer management and immigration advice.

Drop-in sessions

Drop-in sessions are a chance for groups to share ideas and compare their experiences on a particular area of support and to meet other groups around the UK. In drop-in sessions, we usually hear from one or two Community Sponsorship groups who present on a particular subject and then facilitate discussions and answer questions. Groups don’t need to work in isolation when supporting refugees.

Sponsor Refugees also hold their Lunch and Learn sessions twice a month on a Friday afternoon, covering a range of topics. Find their schedule here.
