Statistics on the location of asylum seekers in the UK are linked to the available information on those asylum seekers who are in receipt of section 95 support. The numbers of asylum seekers in receipt of support are available broken down by Local Authority.
As at the end of June 2015, there were 253 asylum seekers receiving Section 95 support from Tameside Local Authority. Similarly, as at the end of June 2014 there were 200 and as at the end of June 2013 there were 184 asylum seekers receiving Section 95 support from Tameside Local Authority.
These figures exclude any asylum seekers who may be living in Tameside but are not receiving support, as figures are not held. These figures also exclude refugees (i.e. those who have been granted asylum) as these figures are not held.
The numbers of asylum seekers in receipt of section 95 support, broken down by Local Authority, are published on a quarterly basis by the Home Office in Table as_16_q of the Immigration Statistics release. The latest publication is available on the GOV.UK website: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/home-office/series/immigration-statistics-quarterly-release .
We do not disclose the details of where refugees are resettled upon their arrival in the UK under the Government resettlement schemes as this may undermine the privacy and recovery of this vulnerable group of people.
