The Government's aim is to provide long term, settled accommodation in local communities for Afghan families as they build new lives in the UK. As part of its contribution, the Ministry of Defence is helping to settle Afghans by making available 550 Service Family Accommodation homes to Local Authorities as a temporary measure. As of 18 May, Local Authorities have leased 55 of these homes, and 52 are now occupied by Afghan families. These are in addition to the 1,014 ARAP families, comprising 4,373 Afghans, who have now settled in permanent accommodation.
The ARAP Scheme does not offer Single Living Accommodation for individuals relocated to the UK.
