Syrian refugee resettlement
We have confirmed we will resettle around 25-30 refugee families through the UK Resettlement Programme. We are looking for housing from both the private and social housing sector, particularly around the Inner Moray Firth area.
The first arrival of refugees in Highland are expected early in 2016, however we are unlikely to know until mid-December at the earliest as to where and when refugees will be resettled in Highland. We will have to match up available housing with other essential services so might not be able to use every property offered.
Refugee families will have limited income and therefore any help towards their rent will be limited to Local Housing Allowance. You may wish to consider this before completing the online form.
If you think you may be able to offer accommodation, please fill out this form.
