Sponsorship Support Bank
Regional Support Organisations
To ensure sponsors are well prepared to take on the responsibilities of their engagement, each Community Sponsorship Group can align themselves with a Regional Support Organisation (RSO). RSOs provide training and support to community sponsorship groups during the application process and are available to help and support groups throughout the sponsorship period.

Interactive Learning Centre
Our Interactive Learning Centre provides access to the formal Community Sponsorship Training Programme available to all community sponsorship groups in Ireland. The training programme was developed in close collaboration with the Regional Support Organisations, expert training consultancy partners, and programme beneficiaries.
