The Home Office is working closely with colleagues in the Department for Communities and Local Government to plan for the integration of Syrian refugees.

We are carefully considering issues such as access to English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), how access to employment can best be supported and how to draw on the support offered from the voluntary sector, including refugee and disapora organisations as well as faith organisations.
