star this property answer text <p>From within Europe, we will continue to meet our obligations under the Dublin Regulation and more unaccompanied children will be transferred to the UK under section 67 of the Immigration Act in the coming months. An announcement will be made in due course on the total number of children to be transferred to the UK under the Immigration Act.</p><p>From outside of Europe, the Government has committed to resettle up to 3,000 individuals under the Vulnerable Children’s Resettlement Scheme (VCRS) from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region by the end of this Parliament, the majority of which will be children. We will also resettle 20,000 Syrians under the Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme (VPR) over the same period. Around half of those resettled under the Syrian VPR so far are children. We do not publish the numbers to be resettled in a given year; whilst we have an internal trajectory, we will manage the flows based on need and in support of the wellbeing of the people and communities involved, rather than rushing to meet targets.</p>
