The Home Office is committed to publishing data in an orderly way as part of the regular quarterly Immigration Statistics, in line with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.

Latest statistics published on 24 May showed that 15,977 people have been resettled in the UK under the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme (VPRS) and 1,410 resettled through the Vulnerable Children’s Resettlement Scheme (VCRS). Since the Community Sponsorship scheme began in July 2016, 281 refugees have been resettled by community sponsor groups across the UK.

The statistics, which include a local authority breakdown of resettlements under the VPRS and VCRS, are available at

We do not publish geographic breakdowns of resettlements at town or parliamentary constituency level, or by community sponsor.
