star this property answer text <p>The UK has already committed to resettling 20,000 Syrian refugees from the region during this parliament and we have no plans to increase this at the present time. Our priorities are humanitarian aid and actively seeking an end to the conflict in Syria.</p><p>We believe this approach is the best way to ensure that the UK’s help has the greatest impact for the majority of refugees who remain in the region and their host countries. The government has been working with the Local Government Association, local authorities and devolved administrations across the UK in order to ensure we have the capacity and infrastructure to meet our commitment to resettle 20,000 vulnerable Syrians by the end of this Parliament.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement scheme is voluntary and there has been a tremendous amount of goodwill from local authorities. Some of those authorities have not resettled people in the initial phases of the scheme, but will be resettling people in the future. We ask local authorities who have pledged their help be sure they have the infrastructure and support networks needed to ensure the appropriate care and integration of these refugees before telling us how many individuals they believe they are able to resettle. Once a local authority has pledged to resettle refugees – however many – we work with them to ensure there are suitable accommodation and care packages in place in that authority area in order for resettlement to take place. We will only place individuals in a particular area once we’ve ensured these arrangements are in place and will manage the flows based on need and in support of the wellbeing of the people and communities involved.</p> more like this
