Deportations are a specific subset of returns which are enforced either following a criminal conviction or when it is judged that a person’s removal from the UK is conducive to the public good. The deportation order prohibits the person returning to the UK until such time as it may be revoked. Published information on those deported is not separately available. As such, the question has been interpreted as referring to enforced returns. In an enforced return, it has been established that a person has breached UK immigration laws and / or has no valid leave to remain in the UK. They have declined to leave voluntarily and the Home Office enforces their departure from the UK.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Total enforced removals</strong></p></td><td><p>Under <br> 14</p></td><td><p><br> 14-15</p></td><td><p><br> 16-17</p></td><td><p>18-20</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2004</p></td><td><p>21,425</p></td><td><p>1,448</p></td><td><p>123</p></td><td><p>274</p></td><td><p>1,722</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2005</p></td><td><p>20,808</p></td><td><p>1,361</p></td><td><p>173</p></td><td><p>278</p></td><td><p>1,643</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2006</p></td><td><p>19,372</p></td><td><p>1,049</p></td><td><p>111</p></td><td><p>198</p></td><td><p>1,365</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2007</p></td><td><p>17,770</p></td><td><p>786</p></td><td><p>68</p></td><td><p>95</p></td><td><p>1,041</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2008</p></td><td><p>17,239</p></td><td><p>684</p></td><td><p>76</p></td><td><p>91</p></td><td><p>1,060</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009</p></td><td><p>15,252</p></td><td><p>584</p></td><td><p>53</p></td><td><p>84</p></td><td><p>1,013</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010</p></td><td><p>14,854</p></td><td><p>296</p></td><td><p>26</p></td><td><p>30</p></td><td><p>991</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011</p></td><td><p>15,063</p></td><td><p>140</p></td><td><p>9</p></td><td><p>31</p></td><td><p>1,138</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012</p></td><td><p>14,647</p></td><td><p>183</p></td><td><p>17</p></td><td><p>23</p></td><td><p>855</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013</p></td><td><p>13,311</p></td><td><p>160</p></td><td><p>12</p></td><td><p>15</p></td><td><p>795</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014</p></td><td><p>12,627</p></td><td><p>76</p></td><td><p>2</p></td><td><p>14</p></td><td><p>601</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015</p></td><td><p>12,111</p></td><td><p>82</p></td><td><p>6</p></td><td><p>6</p></td><td><p>701</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016</p></td><td><p>10,872</p></td><td><p>26</p></td><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>610</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><strong>Notes:</strong></p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Data from Q1 2015 are provisional figures.</p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Data on returns are based on individual cases.

star this property answer text <p>The Government provides funding for a range of services that can be accessed by refugees as part of their successful integration. Language skills and employment skills are key, and the ability to speak English is a key enabler to successful integration. On this basis the Government provides funding for and supports English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) as part of its wider strategy to improve adult literacy in England. ESOL funding is not ring-fenced and comes out of a provider’s Adult Education Budget (AEB). Colleges and training providers have the freedom and flexibility to determine how they use their AEB to meet the needs of their communities. There is no direct funding of cultural bodies for integration purposes although refugees are encouraged to participate in existing social and community groups.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK has a long and proud tradition of providing a safe haven to those who genuinely need our protection. We do not remove asylum seekers. Those who are found not to need protection are refused but have a right of appeal to the independent courts. Once appeals rights are exhausted they are required to leave the UK.</p><p>The term 'deportation' refers to returns which are enforced following either a criminal conviction in the UK (or overseas) which has resulted in a custodial sentence of 12 months or more, or where it is considered that removal of an individual is conducive to the public good due to their criminality.</p><p>Those individuals who do not need protection are expected to return home if their asylum claim is refused and dismissed on appeal. All asylum and human rights claims are carefully considered on their individual merits in accordance with the UK’s obligations under the 1951 United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and the European Convention on Human Rights.</p><p>Where a decision has been made that a person does not require international protection, and there are no remaining rights of appeal or obstacles to their return, the Home Office expects unsuccessful asylum seekers to return voluntarily to their home country. The Home Office’s preferred option is for those who have no legal basis to remain in the UK to leave voluntarily and we offer assistance to those who choose to do so by actively promoting the Home Office Voluntary Return Service.</p><p>If an individual does not leave the UK voluntarily, then it may become necessary to enforce their removal. The Home Office closely monitors developments in all countries of return and takes decisions on a case-by-case basis in the light of international obligations and the latest available country information. The Home Office only enforces removal when it and the courts conclude that it is safe to do so, with a safe route of return. Enforced removals are carried out in the most sensitive way possible, treating those being removed with respect and courtesy.</p>
