Share Capacity Building Workshop for Sponsorship Actors
February 23, 2023
— 5:30 pm
Since the first community sponsorship scheme was launched in Europe in 2016, sponsorship programmes have expanded under highly diverse national and regional frameworks and partnerships, piloting new ways for private citizens and civil society to welcome refugees into their local communities. Each national and local context face their own unique challenges, however, prioritising autonomy and empowerment for the people welcomed is a shared common goal.
The workshop will include training on effectively managing boundaries between sponsorship groups and the families they welcome, and a roundtable discussion between experienced volunteers and sponsored individuals on best practice for autonomy, empowerment, and transition planning;
This workshop is open to sponsorship volunteers, people welcomed through sponsorship, and organisations delivering sponsorship programmes across Europe. It is an opportunity to learn from each other’s experiences and share ideas on best practice.
