Rethink Rebuild Society Managing Director Dr. Haytham Alhamwi delivered a talk at the Kent Community Sponsorship event held in Canterbury on the 15th of March. His talk was about enforced displacement for Syrians and their life in the UK.
Those giving talks also included representatives from the Home Office, Local Government, Successful Community Sponsors and Humanities Scholars and the opening talk was given by the Right Reverend Trevor Willmott, Bishop of Dover.
The event was an opportunity to gain key information, ask questions, network and connect with others who are keen to support refugees through community sponsorship. It also gave participants the chance to learn more about the Government’s Community Sponsorship Scheme – an initiative which allows faith and community groups to support a Syrian family to settle in the UK.
Thanks for Canterbury Diocese for organising this important event.
