Community Refugee Sponsorship Initiative with Dr Russell Rook

.

The South Australian Fabians and Welcome to Australia invite you to join us for an evening with Dr Russell Rook, community activist and refugee advocate.

Dr Russell Rook has worked for The Salvation Army and founded a charity delivering innovative community services in disadvantaged communities.

He then served as a Parliamentary Aide to Baroness Sherlock of Durham in the House of Lords, and was on the Labour Welfare team in Parliament, before becoming an advisor on faith and civil society to the then Leader of the Opposition, Ed Miliband MP.

Russel is a partner at Good Faith Partnership and leads the RAMP Project, a cross party initiative seeking to transform the immigration debate in the UK. He has worked with government and civil society to help co-construct the Community Sponsorship Scheme for Refugees.

Russell is the chair of Reset, a charity building the capacity of local communities to welcome and integrate refugees across the UK and works with the Global Refugee Sponsorship Initiative, helping other countries to develop sponsorship programmes.
