Cape Clear Community Sponsorship Group

Community sponsorship empowers members of the public who wish to become the face of welcome in their local community and to assume responsibility for providing a range of integration supports to a refugee family.

To participate, like-minded members of the public must come together to form a group of five or more, partner with a Regional Support Organisation (RSO) who will provide training, advice and support, and lodge an applications with the Department of Justice and Equality. Sponsors are asked to commit to providing financial and non-financial supports to a resettled family for eighteen months; and to source suitable housing for two years. Sponsorship groups also play a key role in introducing resettled families to State services, local amenities, educational and language resources and social and professional net-works in the new community in which they have settled.



Community sponsorship is a new way to welcome refugees to Ireland; it is a unique collaboration between Government, UNHCR (the UN Refugee Agency), NGOs and civil society.
