Helen coordinates Holywood Resettlement Group in Northern Ireland, which is a community sponsorship group which works under the auspices of the lead sponsor Holywood Shared Town. The group are only the second in Northern Ireland to have brought a refugee family to Northern Ireland under the Community Sponsorship scheme. Helen and her group are keen to see community sponsorship expand in Northern Ireland. While their experience of welcoming a refugee family has been very positive, they are also keen for the scheme to learn from and respond to some of the difficulties that have been experienced. She joined CSA to join forces to see community sponsorship thrive. Helen’s day job is as a public health academic. She is an immigrant to the UK, who brought up her children in Northern Ireland.
