Lords
To ask Her Majesty's Government how much of the £1.75 million allocated to the Controlling Migration Fund has been distributed to local authorities to help refugees find permanent housing.
Answered on: 04 March 2019

Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has awarded £1.75 million from the Controlling Migration Fund to support 35 new Local Authority Asylum Support Liaison Officer (LAASLO) pilots. These will operate across 19 local authority areas with some of the highest numbers of asylum seekers, and will offer tailored support to newly recognised refugees. This will include working closely with other agencies during the 28-day move-on period, to secure accommodation for new refugees following a successful asylum decision.
