Community Sponsorship Capacity Building Fund

The Home Office is inviting organisations across the UK to apply to the £1 million Capacity Building for Community Sponsorship of Refugees scheme.  

The fund aims to support the Community Sponsorship scheme which enables community groups to welcome and support refugee families coming into the UK. Sponsor groups can include charities, businesses, local authorities, community groups and third sector organisations. 

The Government is offering the funding to give experienced organisations the resources to provide training and support to groups who want to sponsor refugees. 

Organisations with relevant experience are encouraged to apply to the fund, which seeks to achieve a number of different outcomes including the following:

  • Training for community groups on how to welcome and support refugees in their area, and how to apply to become sponsors.

  • Connecting people and organisations who want to help resettled refugees through community sponsorship.

  • Raising awareness of community sponsorship across different UK communities. 

Closing date: 15th December
