Reform Judaism welcomes launch of Full Community Sponsorship of refugees

The Home Office has today launched Full Community Sponsorship for refugees. With the launch of the brand new scheme (modelled on a similar, hugely successful, programme in Canada) community groups will be given the opportunity to personally welcome and support refugees arriving in the UK.

Last year, religious leaders, including Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner, Senior Rabbi to Reform Judaism, called on the Government to revive the great British tradition of offering hope and sanctuary to refugees asking that they re-establish a private sponsorship of refugees programme to help Syrian refugees reach safety in the UK.

Read more about the scheme at the Citizens UK website.
