The UK government is committed to humanitarian efforts to support refugees at home and abroad.

On Monday 17 June, at the start of Refugee Week, the Home Secretary announced that the UK will continue to resettle thousands of refugees under a new scheme to start in 2020.

On the same day, the Home Secretary chaired a roundtable with faith leaders to discuss refugee resettlement and asylum matters; and the Minister of State for Immigration met with refugees, community sponsor groups and representatives from Lambeth Council to hear their experiences of resettlement.
