In May 2016, Cardiff Council and the Vale of Glamorgan Council agreed to participate in the resettlement of vulnerable Syrian refugees under the Home Office scheme on a regional basis, under a three year Collaborative Agreement.
In May 2016, an Integration and Support Services provider was appointed to provide resettlement support across the region, in accordance with the requirements set out in the Home Office Funding Instructions.
Both Agreements expire on 16th May 2019, so Cabinet approval is required to continue to participate in the resettlement of vulnerable refugees until March 2020, on a regional basis, in line with the Home Office scheme.
Participation in the Scheme is on a voluntary basis, and is subject to grant funding being made available to Cardiff Council and the Vale of Glamorgan Council on an annual basis, to support the cost of resettlement and integration.
