Donate to BRSG
In November 2016 we launched our sponsorship donation scheme, seeking 150 people willing to donate £5 a month for 20 months or £100 up front. Due to the incredible generosity of local people, and from some as far afield as Israel and Singapore, we reached our target in February 2017. This meant we were able to complete our application for Community Sponsorship of our first refugee family, and they arrived in July 2017. We then sought further donations to enable us to sponsor a second family. We achieved this in December 2017 and our second family arrived in March 2018.
As a Community Sponsor, BRSG is responsible for the main resettlement costs: securing and furnishing private rental accommodation, paying the monthly rental top up, providing English classes for the adults, paying for interpreters, supporting re-training for employment, and many more incidental expenses for the families, who arrived in the UK with very little. This financial support will continue for 2 years.
Once the families are more settled and independent, BRSG will be working towards another of its aims: to provide holidays for children in Bude.
