Our resettlement schemes prioritise the most vulnerable refugees regardless of race, religion or ethnicity – we do not discriminate in favour of, or against, any particular group. This is why we work closely with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees which has well-established procedures and criteria for identifying and resettling the most vulnerable refugees.
The refugees that we are bringing to the United Kingdom are very vulnerable people. Our primary concern is their safety and protection as they arrive here. We believe that one way to protect their privacy and enable their recovery and integration is to limit the amount of information about them that we make publicly available. We therefore do not plan to publish a breakdown of resettled refugees’ religious affiliations.
