The British public has been very generous in their offers to help and accommodate refugees under the UK’s Resettlement schemes. Many have made offers of housing directly to their local authority or through the Help Refugees in the UK website. We don’t hold information about how many offers of housing are made or taken up by local authorities.
Some community groups are also offering housing for refugees through the Community Sponsorship scheme. This is a new scheme launched in July, for which we do not currently report numbers.
