In November 2016 the Government agreed to fund a package of approximately £40 million to improve the lives of Chagossians in the communities in which they now live. We are engaging with the UK Chagossian community to identify the constraints and barriers experienced by them to inform our ongoing assessment of needs. We will continue to work with Chagossian communities to identify and develop programmes which will make the biggest improvement in the life chances of Chagossians who need it most. Ministers remain committed to meeting the objectives of this package.
