We've provided advice based on the common challenges that sponsor groups have faced and examples of how they have overcome them, see the document downloads on this page. You will need to be logged in to view it.
It is important to bear in mind that your group is not expected to be able to solve every problem that the refugees you support may encounter. Your role is to help them understand the problem and contact the relevant people or services for advice.
Don't approach the challenges you face on your own. Reset, and your Lead Sponsor (if you have one) will be very happy to provide support and advice if you need it, and there may be other specialist services in your area, such as Citizens Advice Bureau, that can also provide assistance.
You can find more resources about specific challenges on our website including:
