The UK government has committed itself to a Vulnerable Persons Relocation Scheme whereby people fleeing persecution from Syria are selected and processed in the region of origin and brought to the UK with their status already determined. Under this scheme a specific quota of refugees will be coming to the UK for resettlement.
The resettlement team provides advice and support for resettled refugees to help them access services and mainstream provision, and establish community links. Working closely with local stakeholders and in partnership with other voluntary sector agencies running similar services across the UK, the Refugee Council resettlement team promotes both the integration and independence of this group.
The Refugee Council has agreed to work in partnership with Hertfordshire to deliver the regional programme. The Project manager will work closely with the management teams in all boroughs in Hertfordshire.
