unstar this property answer text <p>Asylum seekers are housed across the UK under voluntary agreements between national government and local authorities that have been in place since 2000.The Home Office maintains an active partnership with local governments across the UK, including those in Scotland, and funds Strategic Migration Partnerships to plan for the most appropriate dispersal of asylum seekers. The partnerships consider the impact on communities and local services so that adjustments to dispersal patterns can be made where appropriate.</p><p>Local authorities are consulted before asylum seekers are placed in their area, so that the potential impact on communities and local services is fully considered. We continue to work closely with a wide range of local authorities, including those in Scotland, to increase the number of areas that voluntarily accommodate and support people seeking asylum and protection – every local authority is encouraged to contribute.</p><p>There are powers in the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 to designate areas of the country as “reception zones” if it is believed that a local authority covering the particular area has suitable housing that can used to accommodate destitute asylum seekers. The Home Office has not used these powers, but would consult fully with local authorities and Ministers of the Scottish Government if they were minded to use them.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>All accommodation providers are monitored closely to ensure accommodation meets contractual standards; this includes measures to ensure issues and complaints are quickly addressed. Failure of accommodation providers to resolve issues within strict time limits may result in the application of service credits.</p><p>Asylum seekers are encouraged to report issues about their accommodation to their accommodation provider for them to resolve. The Department also provides information to all asylum seekers, including direct telephone numbers to local and national UKVI staff where they can raise issues about the condition of their accommodation. As a result of recent improvements to the Home Office inspection regime the Contract Compliance Team measures service delivery via a short questionnaire to assess the level of contact, welcome briefing and support from the provider.</p><p>We are taking further steps to ensure asylum seekers’ voices are heard so that they feel confident to report complaints about their accommodation or any concerns they are having about their safety. To help achieve this, an advisory Board has been established which will enable the Home Office to discuss accommodation related issues with key NGO stakeholders, including those that pertain to issues raised regarding accommodation in Glasgow.</p>

The COMPASS suppliers are required to consult local government formally to ensure relevant housing licensing requirements are met. UKVI officials have engaged with local government, through Strategic Migration Partnerships to devise suitable consultation protocols so that both parties are able to consider the most suitable locations for initial accommodation. In the circumstance that contingency options are deployed, the COMPASS provider is required to inform local dispersal authorities of the intended short term use of properties in their area, as initial accommodation facilities for asylum seekers, including in hotels.</p> more like this
