Archbishop of Canterbury to house refugee family as part of government scheme

A new scheme to allow community groups to sponsor a refugee family has been launched, as part of the Government's plan to resettle thousands of the most vulnerable refugees in the UK.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, who will himself house a family of refugees in a cottage at his London residence, says many of those coming to the UK have experienced trauma and now need love.
