star this property answer text <p>A number of local authorities across the UK accept Syrian refugees under normal asylum procedures. Over 3,400 Syrians have been granted asylum or other forms of leave since the crisis in Syria began in 2011. Furthermore, Syrian asylum seekers who are not being accommodated by the Government, can choose to live in any local authority area. <br><br>In addition to this the Home Secretary launched the Syrian Vulnerable Persons Relocation (VPR) scheme last January to provide sanctuary for those displaced Syrians who are most at risk, particularly survivors of torture and violence, women and children at risk and those in need of medical care. <br><br>Following the launch of this scheme the Home Secretary wrote to the Chairman of the Local Government Association on 11 February 2014 encouraging local authority participation and this letter has been cascaded across local authorities. So far, three local authorities have received refugees under the scheme and we continue to engage closely with additional local authorities who have expressed an interest in participation. We therefore remain confident that we can continue to meet the needs of arrivals in the UK under the scheme as planned but we welcome further offers of support from other local authorities as the scheme progresses.<br><br>Full costs borne by the local authorities will not be known until the refugees have been in UK for a full 12 months. Costs will depend on the particular vulnerabilities of those brought to the UK, and we are keeping costs under close review. <br><br>Central government is responsible for the overall funding of the scheme, but we will recover costs wherever possible, including from international aid funding schemes and potential EU funding schemes. We have put forward proposals to obtain funding from the new EU Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund and are hopeful of a positive outcome. The UK’s National Programme is yet to be agreed and until this is signed off by the EU Commission, costs to the Home Office specifically will not be finalised.<br><br>Ninety people were relocated to the UK under the Syrian Vulnerable Persons Relocation (VPR) scheme between the first group of arrivals on 25 March and the end of September. This is the latest publicly available figure, as numbers are released as part of the Home Office official statistics each quarter. The number of arrivals under the scheme up to the end of December 2014 will be published on 26 February. <br><br>We have said that we expect the scheme to help several hundred people over three years, and we remain on track to deliver that commitment.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

Costs will depend on the particular vulnerabilities of those brought to the UK, and we are keeping costs under close review. <br><br>Central government is responsible for the overall funding of the scheme, but we will recover costs wherever possible, including from international aid funding schemes and potential EU funding schemes. We have put forward proposals to obtain funding from the new EU Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund and are hopeful of a positive outcome. The UK’s National Programme is yet to be agreed and until this is signed off by the EU Commission, costs to the Home Office specifically will not be finalised.<br><br>Ninety people were relocated to the UK under the Syrian Vulnerable Persons Relocation (VPR) scheme between the first group of arrivals on 25 March and the end of September. This is the latest publicly available figure, as numbers are released as part of the Home Office official statistics each quarter. The number of arrivals under the scheme up to the end of December 2014 will be published on 26 February. <br><br>We have said that we expect the scheme to help several hundred people over three years, and we remain on track to deliver that commitment.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Syrian Vulnerable Persons Relocation (VPR) scheme is designed to complement our humanitarian aid efforts and is based on need. The scheme is designed to help particularly vulnerable individuals displaced by the Syrian crisis who cannot be supported effectively in the region, particularly survivors of torture and violence, women and children at risk and those in need of medical care. We are working closely with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to identify the most vulnerable people displaced by the conflict and UNHCR are best placed to ensure that the corresponding referrals are responsive to need. <br><br>Given the serious vulnerability of the beneficiaries, our priority is to ensure that the support and accommodation they need is in place before they arrive in the UK. We are working closely with UNHCR, the International Organisation for Migration and local authority services to achieve this as soon as practically possible as the circumstances of each particular case allow. In view of this we do not apply a standard target time for relocation and we do not collect corresponding data on individual cases. We said that we would relocate several hundred people over three years and we are on course to achieve this.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
