11/06/2020 - United Kingdom Resettlement Scheme ref: 18224    Recommendations Approved

The Government announced, in the summer of 2019, a new refugee resettlement programme, the United Kingdom Resettlement Scheme. This scheme will resettle refugees from many different nationalities and will consolidate a number of existing programmes. Local authorities have been invited to submit pledges to resettle refugees under the new scheme and many district councils in Lancashire and Blackpool Council have already committed to participate. The scheme is fully funded by central Government, with no financial implications to local authorities. Lancashire County Council is already working with other local authorities in Lancashire to deliver the Syrian Resettlement Programme and the Vulnerable Children Resettlement Scheme, through which over 600 refugees have been resettled in Lancashire in the past four years.
