The support for Afghan arrivals follows the largest and most complex evacuation in living memory. It includes:
£3 million of additional NHS funding
All arrivals are being offered the COVID-19 vaccine
£5 million funding for councils in England, Wales and Scotland
£200 million has been committed to meet the cost of the first
year of the Afghanistan Citizens' Resettlement Scheme
The British public have shown a hugely generous spirit, with many constituents contacting offering help to arriving families.
To harness this generosity the Government has created the below portal where offers of housing can be submitted.
Work is underway to expand this to further offers, such as job opportunities, professional skills training or donations of items like clothes or toys.
If you would like to help and are in the position to be able to, please use the portal below.
