Refugee resettlement summary

In September 2015, the Government announced the UK’s plans to resettle 20,000 Syrian refugees over the next five years. Nine district councils across Hertfordshire have confirmed their commitment to the Syrian Vulnerable Person Resettlement Programme (SVPRP), including Dacorum. 

It was agreed in September 2015 that we will support the resettlement of ten families over the five years, equating to approximately two families per year.
