Syrian Refugees

In September 2015, the Government announced that the UK would resettle up to 20,000 refugees by the end of the current parliament in 2020. Cheshire West and Chester Council is proud to be taking part in the Syrian Resettlement Programme and to welcome people into the borough who have been forced to flee their homes due to the ongoing conflict in the region.

The Council is committed to working with partners to support refugees to resettle successfully in the borough. Council officers have been working closely with neighbouring Councils, other key partners and with the North West Regional Strategic Migration Partnership to develop a co-ordinated framework for resettling refugees. The Strategic Migration Partnership coordinates refugee resettlement across the North West on behalf of the Home Office and works with local authorities to support them to take part in the resettlement programme.
