Resettlement is finding a permanent home for a family that has been given refugee status and humanitarian permission to stay in the UK.   

Host Abingdon has been actively engaged with families arriving in our area under the Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme. We now have a network of volunteer family support workers and English teachers. We have given the families the help they need to rebuild their lives.  We have helped them to learn English, understand local customs, and access healthcare and education. And we have helped them meet local people and gain confidence and independence.


Host Abingdon can now provide local network for individuals and groups who want to help in the on-going UK Community Sponsorship Resettlement Scheme. Being a community sponsor is a big commitment but is quite feasible with the right support.  Click here to find out more about Community Sponsorship and the resettlement of a family.
