The Asylum Accommodation and Support Contract(AASC) mobilisation transition plans have also built on a number of other lessons, including the creation of a team with suitable experience, expertise and understanding of the new contracts and the early engagement with enabling functions from across the Home Office to plan out the demands that will be placed on them.</p><p>As we move to the mobilisation phase we will increase our engagement with Local Authorities, where my officials will be happy to discuss and address any concerns that Local Authorities have with the transition plans<sup>.</sup></p><p> </p> more like this

However dispersal across the UK is carefully managed by the Home Office to ensure the best outcomes for asylum seekers and their host communities.
