This is in addition to those we resettle through our Gateway and Mandate schemes and the thousands who receive protection in the UK under normal asylum procedures.</p><p> </p><p>Our priorities are humanitarian aid and actively seeking an end to the conflict in Syria.

star this property answer text Our prime concern is the safety and protection of unaccompanied minors resettled in the UK as they arrive in this country. We want to protect their privacy and ensure their recovery and integration, as they rebuild their lives in safe and secure surroundings, among supportive communities in the UK. We will not, therefore, be providing a running commentary on numbers of unaccompanied children resettled through the scheme. Progress on resettlement under the Vulnerable Children’s Resettlement scheme is indicated in quarterly immigration statistics. The last set of statistics, published on 24 August, showed that 280 vulnerable people have been resettled since the scheme began in 2016. The statistics are available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/immigration-statistics-quarterly-release" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/immigration-statistics-quarterly-release</a> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Home Office will hold relevant immigration history and biographical details on individuals with whom the department has had contact, either through an enforcement encounter, asylum claim, visa or immigration application. Should an individual become Appeal Rights Exhausted every effort is made to effect a return to their country of origin. If an individual absconds or goes missing, the Home Office will work with other agencies to locate the individual as quickly as possible. Through the Immigration Act 2016, we have made it more difficult for people to remain in the UK illegally by incentivising voluntary returns, introducing tougher penalties for illegal working and restricting illegal migrants’ access to services.</p> more like this
