A message from Chris Brennan of the Clifton Refugee Sponsorship Scheme.
The Clifton Refugee Sponsorship Scheme is run by parishioners of Clifton Roman Catholic Cathedral (UK), and comes under the Clifton Diocese and its Bishop Declan Lang.
The family came to Bristol on 9th October 2019 under the sponsorship of CRSS and are currently living in Westbury on Trym. Their present home, a two-bedroom first-floor flat, is proving to be inadequate as the boys grow up, and they now require a larger home with immediate effect but no later than 17th November 2021 when their current tenancy expires.
Ideally, the family would like a 3 bedroom ground floor flat (or house) with access to a small garden within commuting distance of Bristol Free School, BS10 6NJ, but any property outside this area would be considered even if it means a change of school.
I'd be very grateful if you would advertise this requirement in your Parish Newsletters bearing in mind that the family are in receipt of Universal Credit which includes a monthly local housing allowance currently capped at £824.99 for 2 bedrooms rising to £950 for 3 bedrooms when the oldest boy reaches the age of 16 in March 2022.
If any of your parishioners can be of help then please ask them to contact me directly.
