What you'll need to become a sponsor
Make sure your home is suitable
The most important thing is that you're able to provide at least 6 months of stable accommodation. This can be anything from an empty room to an unoccupied home.
To ensure the safety and privacy of guests, we are asking for sponsors who can offer an empty room as a minimum. A bed in a shared space (a sofa bed in a sitting room for example) would not be appropriate accommodation.
You should also consider how many people you can accommodate so they have sufficient space.
Two people should not be in one room unless they are:
- adult partners
- a parent and child
- two siblings of the same gender aged over 10
- two siblings regardless of gender aged under 10
Individuals who didn't previously know each other should not be given the same room.
