Our Advocacy Director, Dr Haytham Alhamwi, delivered a talk at the "Community Sponsorship Training - Sharing experiences and good" event held in London on Friday 15 September 2017.
The event was organised by Refugee Action, in association with the Good Faith Partnership and brought together people from community sponsorship groups, both those that are already hosting a refugee family and others that expect to do shortly. The primary focus of the training was on understanding the specific challenges that resettled refugees face, and reflecting on the implications of this for the way in which they can be
best empowered and supported. Dr Alhamwi's talk focused on the cultural differences between the Syrian society and the British society and how sponsors can bridge the gap between these two cultures.
