The Government's Syrian resettlement programme provides funding for the full costs of resettlement in the first year.
The refugees arriving under this scheme are funded by the Government from the International Development Fund. This will cover costs for providing caseworkers, securing housing, health, education and support to integrate into the community. Each case will be different as each family will have different needs, different skills and be from different backgrounds.
The refugees will be encouraged and supported to find employment as soon as they can.
We will also receive funding from central government for years 2-5 of the resettlement programme, with funding reducing over the period, reflecting evidence from existing resettlement programmes that costs associated with resettlement will decrease over time.
