Community Sponsorship

Community Sponsorship provides a practical, tangible and sustainable way to make a real difference to people affected by war and persecution.

Community Sponsorship allows you to welcome and support a refugee family in your local community.

The support that you offer begins as soon as the family arrives in Ireland and lasts for 18 months.

During this time, you and your community sponsorship group (CSG) will help equip the family with all the skills and knowledge required to live independently in Ireland.
