To ask Her Majesty's Government how many children under the age of 18 have been resettled under the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme to date, broken down by (1) region, and (2) local authority.
Answered on: 08 December 2017

Latest statistics published on 30 November 2017 confirmed that a total of 9,394 vulnerable people have been resettled since the start of the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme (VPRS) across various local authorities. Around half of those resettled under the VPRS were children.

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. The statistics are available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/immigration-statistics-quarterly-release

The Home Office does not hold data in relation to the number of children resettled through this scheme who are currently accessing education or the average waiting time for children to start full-time education.

We continue to work with local authorities to make sure that every child has a school place.
