UK Welcomes Refugees came into existence after months of listening and a series of discussions about community sponsorship of refugees. We seek to promote, protect, and build a powerful Community Sponsorship Movement in the United Kingdom, working closely with partners, associates, and allies.

We believe that it is vital to have a strong collective voice that can bring community sponsors, sponsored families, lead sponsors and the wider community sponsorship family together to lead the community sponsorship movement, and build a successful Community Sponsorship scheme in the United Kingdom and across the globe.

Community Sponsorship can transform the lives of a refugee family and the lives of the community that welcomes them. It can even change our view of the world and give expression to our passion for a kinder and more just world.” – Mark Wiggin, CEO Caritas Diocese of Salford and community sponsor
