unstar this property answer text <p>The Home Office have not made any estimation of the number of asylum seeking children unable to apply for UK citizenship due to the cost of the application fee.</p><p>In line with international law, the UK does not charge for asylum applications. Those granted refugee status can then apply for indefinite leave to remain at the end of their limited leave period. This application is also free of charge.</p><p>Applying for British nationality is not mandatory and many individuals who have indefinite leave to remain (ILR) status choose not to apply. This is because, in addition to lawful permanent residence in the UK, a person with ILR enjoys the benefits of full access to the UK labour market, state education and healthcare and the ability to sponsor family members’ residence in the UK. Fees for citizenship applications apply equally to all applicants.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government is determined to do everything it can to tackle knife crime and break the deadly cycle of violence that devastates the lives of victims, families and communities.</p><p>The police funding settlement provides the police with the biggest increase in funding since 2010, and in addition we are providing the additional £100 million to tackle serious violence announced in the Spring Statement on 13 March, which includes £80m of new funding from the Treasury. £63.4 million of this funding has been allocated to the 18 police forces most affected by serious violence to pay for surge operational activity, including increased patrols. £1.6 million has been invested in improving the quality of data on serious violence to support planning and operations. A full list of the forces and the funding they have received from the serious violence fund is available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/police-granted-funding-boost-for-action-on-serious-violence" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/news/police-granted-funding-boost-for-action-on-serious-violence</a></p><p>We are also taking wider actions to address knife crime. The £35m of the Serious Violence Fund is being invested in Violence Reduction Units to support multi-agency efforts to tackle serious violence. Through the Offensive Weapons Act we are tightening the law in relation to knives, including making it an offence to possess certain offensive weapons in private. We are also introducing new Knife Crime Prevention Orders, to help to the police address young people who are on the cusp of serious violence, encouraging them make more positive lifestyle choices. We also continue to support the police national weeks of action against knife crime under Operation Sceptre.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Tackling serious violence is a top priority for the Government and it is clear we must continue to step up the response to stop this violence.</p><p>The Serious Violence Strategy sets out the Government’s approach, which depends on a multi-agency approach across several sectors. The Strategy places a greater emphasis on early intervention and prevention to tackle the root causes of serious violence and provide young people with the skills and resilience to lead productive lives free from crime.</p><p>On 1 April, we launched a consultation on a new legal duty to support a public health approach to preventing and tackling serious violence. The consultation closed on 28 May, and the Government response to the consultation will be published shortly.</p><p>On 13 March, an additional £100 million to tackle serious violence was announced at the Spring Statement. £63.4 million of this funding has been allocated to 18 police forces worst affected by serious violence to support increased police operational activity, and £1.6m is being used to improve the data available on knife crime to support police activity. On 17 April, we announced that the remaining £35m of this funding will be invested in the development of Violence Reduction Units (VRUs) in areas most affected by serious violence. The VRUs will bring together a range of agencies to address the causes of violence.</p><p>The Home Secretary has also established a new £200m Youth Endowment Fund that will provide targeted intervention and support over the next 10 years for those young people most at risk of serious violence. A key purpose will be to develop the evidence base demonstrating which interventions are most effective in deterring children and young people away from crime and violence and, since it will operate for a minimum of ten years, it will have the capacity to bring successful interventions all the way through from pilot stage to deployment at scale. The Fund will ensure that this vital learning is shared and help ensure that the most effective interventions are funded.</p><p>The Youth Endowment Fund became effective from the start of April. It is independent of Government and is being run by the charity Impetus, working in partnership with the Early Intervention Foundation and Social Investment Business. The first funding round is open for applications from 28 May until 23 July.</p>
