star this property answer text <p>In 2018, we announced a programme of work to explore ways of supporting disadvantaged families during school holidays.</p><p>We received 94 applications for funding from organisations across the country for a share of £2 million. Following a 2-stage competitive bid assessment process, we awarded funding to the 7 highest scoring organisations: Feeding Britain, Family Action, Street Games UK, On Side Youth Zones, Children North East, Birmingham Holiday Kitchen and TLG. The 87 unsuccessful organisations were notified and offered feedback on their application.</p><p>Building on the 2018 programme we quadrupled funding and strengthened the programme to encourage co-ordination in local communities so that even more disadvantaged children can benefit.</p><p>Applications were invited from organisations to act as a coordinator in a specific local authority area. We received 92 applications and selected 11 for funding, including at least one in each of the 9 English regions. As with 2018, unsuccessful bidders were all notified and feedback was offered.</p><p>The purpose of this programme is to allow us to gather more evidence about the scale of the issue, the most effective ways of tackling it, and the costs and burdens associated with doing so. As a result, we will be able to make an evidence-based decision about whether and how we should intervene in the longer term.</p>

Currently, around half of those who seek asylum in the UK are found not to need international protection. This is why support towards integration is offered at the point where someone has been recognised as a refugee.</p><p>The Government published the cross-government Integrated Communities Action plan in February 2019. In the action plan we have committed to ensuring all refugees are supported and empowered to integrate and rebuild their lives in the UK, focusing on improving support for English language, employment, mental health, and orientation to life in the UK.</p> more like this

The Immigration White Paper, ‘The UK’s future skills-based immigration system’, published in December 2018, sets out the foundation for a single immigration system, where it is workers’ skills that matter, not where they come from. This system will remove the cap on skilled migrants, abolish the requirement to undertake a Resident Labour Market Test and significantly improve the timeliness of being able to apply for a visa.</p><p>Additionally, legislation introduced on 7 March 2019 means health and care professionals with professional qualifications from European Union and Swiss institutions who are currently registered can continue to practise in the United Kingdom as they do now, guaranteeing their ability to work in the NHS.</p><p> </p> more like this

We have already delivered over 100 events in every nation of the UK, reaching almost 1500 stakeholders.</p><p>As part of our engagement, on 24 June 2019, the Government asked the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to consider the issue of minimum salary thresholds in more detail. As part of this new commission, we have asked the MAC to look at a number of issues including the approach to calculating salary thresholds, the levels at which they should be set, the case for greater regional variation and the impact of exemptions from minimum salary thresholds. This report is due by January 2020.</p><p><br>We have been very clear that no decision on the levels at which salary thresholds should be set will be taken until we have completed the UK-wide engagement process that is currently underway.</p>
