The Government is working with local authorities across the UK to meet the demand for housing. Over 9,000 Afghans under our ACRS and ARAP pathways [please check this] have been supported into settled accommodation.

Hotels are not suitable for long-term accommodation, and we want to support people to rebuild their lives in the UK so that they can enjoy the freedoms of independent living and integrate into society. Supporting them to move into long-term more suitable accommodation is critical in achieving this.
