Community Sponsorship is a refugee resettlement programme enabling local people to sponsor refugees to come to the UK. The more people that get involved, the more refugees will be resettled. This is a programme that involves people of all ages, with whole families often becoming involved in one way or another. To raise awareness of the programme, we've come up with this activity for children:

Imagine that someone new is moving to your neighbourhood and you don't speak the same language. What would you do to make them feel welcome? Create something to show us what you would do - you can draw something, write something, make music... anything at all! 

We're asking you to take pictures or videos of your children's creations and send them to so that we can display them on our website and social media platforms.

Important: When you send us your images and videos, you give us permission to display them online. Your children do NOT have to feature in the images -- we're looking for images of their creations.
