Progress on resettlement is reported in quarterly immigration statistics, including the local authorities participating in the Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme and how many refugees have been resettled in each area. This is a voluntary scheme whereby local authorities sign up to accept refugees on a voluntary basis. No refugees have been resettled to Cumbria under any of our other resettlement schemes.
