Settlement organizations play an important role in refugee resettlement. Also of importance, is the growing role of the private sponsor. This webinar discussed best practices of how settlement serving organizations can better connect and support private sponsor groups and addressed the following:
- How frontline workers can support privately sponsored refugees during their initial settlement in BC
- The role of sponsors and the roles of settlement organizations to have a better understanding of how to support refugees during their initial settlement in BC
- How settlement organizations can best connect to private sponsor groups
- Creating a mutual understanding between settlement organizations and private sponsors on roles and responsibilities, managing expectations, cultural awareness, and ethical considerations
This webinar was designed to equip managers, instructors of LINC and frontline staff with information on how to support privately sponsored refugees and how to work collaboratively with the sponsoring group.
