Reset’s Community Sponsorship Training

For the Home Office to approve you as a Community Sponsorship Group, you will need to attend required training provided by Reset to prepare you for working with refugees. 

Our training sessions last from around 10am to 4pm, and will take place within your region, on weekends as well as weekdays depending on your availability. The session covers a range of topics including cultural awareness, setting boundaries when supporting refugees and planning for arrivals. The sessions are designed to be interactive, with case studies taken from Community Sponsorship Groups which will allow you to think through how you would respond to real-life situations. These sessions are intended for the members of your group directly supporting a refugee family however, space allowing, we are very happy for other members of the group to attend. The training sessions often have members from other Community Sponsorship Groups present and can offer a great opportunity to connect with other groups and share ideas and experiences.

Groups should have submitted or be close to submitting their application to the Home Office. Don’t worry if you have submitted your application without booking training, you will be referred to us by the Home Office. We are also happy for members of groups that have already been approved, or those that are working with families, to attend, but we may have to prioritise people from groups awaiting approval.
