The Strategic Oversight Group, established in December 2022, is a cross-HMG group (along with the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities) and is co-chaired with the LGA Chief Executive. This group allows dialogue between national and local government within asylum and resettlement.

We continue to work closely with the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, and local government, to mitigate asylum accommodation pressures. Additionally, we work with the Department for Work & Pensions to ensure those asylum seekers granted leave to remain can access benefits promptly.
