star this property answer text <p>The automated checks of employment and benefits records of applications to the EU Settlement Scheme by those who choose to provide their National Insurance number have enabled most adults so far granted status under the scheme to be so without needing to provide any further evidence of their UK residence.</p><p>Where the automated checks do not provide sufficient evidence of UK residence for the applicant to be granted the status for which they think they qualify, they can upload a wide variety of documentary evidence.</p><p>Where this is necessary, the results of the checks will indicate to the applicant which period(s) of residence they need to evidence. We will not be able to tell applicants why the automated check is unable to cover all their UK residence because doing so may introduce the risk of identity theft and abuse. We recognise that some applicants may lack documentary evidence for various reasons, and we will work flexibly with applicants to help them evidence their UK residence by the best means available to them.</p><p><br>More information about the automated checks including why records may not be found in full or in part is available at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/eu-settlement-scheme-uk-tax-and-benefits-records-automated-check.%20" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/eu-settlement-scheme-uk-tax-and-benefits-records-automated-check. </a></p>

Where an application is defined as non-straightforward, due to complexity, the customer will be written to within the normal processing time to explain why it will not be decided within the normal standard, and to explain what will happen next).</p><p>The published statistics on leave to remain applications that have been processed within service standard can be found in the migration transparency data release https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/in-country-migration-data-february-2019 at: InC_02: Percentage of In-Country visa applications, for each Route, processed within Service Standards.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We recognise that certain crimes may disproportionately or predominantly affect rural areas. That is why we welcome the Rural Affairs Strategy published by the National Police Chiefs’ Council in July 2018. The Strategy sets out operational and organisational policing priorities in respect of tackling rural crime and can be found at: <a href="https://www.nwcu.police.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/NPCC-Rural-affairs-Strategy-2018-2021.pdf." target="_blank">https://www.nwcu.police.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/NPCC-Rural-affairs-Strategy-2018-2021.pdf.</a></p><p><br>Through the election of Police and Crime Commissioners we have ensured that communities, including those in rural areas, have a strong voice in determining how police resources are allocated to tackle the crimes that matter most to them.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

The total value of the fund to the UK is currently €538.2m.</p><p>Funding is not allocated directly to local authorities unless they have applied for funding through an open call for proposals operated by the Responsible Authority, one of which is currently open with £50m available for organisations to apply for, for integration related activities for third country nationalS, including refugees. The Home Office, as the department with responsibility for migration, is also able to apply for AMIF funds, and has received a significant amount of AMIF funds to date.</p><p>There is no particular amount allocated to managing child refugees. A full list of funded projects is published each August on the AMIF page of <a href="http://www.gov.uk" target="_blank">www.gov.uk</a> along with the UK National Programme and information about calls for <br>proposals.</p>
