The commitment to resettle 20,000 refugees from Syria by 2020 was made by the Government in September 2015. Funding enables authorities to provide refugees who have fled conflict and persecution with a safe environment and the chance to rebuild their lives. The Home Office Official Development Assistance (ODA) budget pays for two resettlement schemes: The Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme (SVPRS) and the Vulnerable Children Resettlement Scheme (VCRS). Home Office ODA funding pays for food, shelter and training for up to 12 months. By the end of Sept. 2019, over 18,000 refugees had found safety in the UK to rebuild their lives as part of the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme. The Home Office is on-track to deliver the full VPRS commitment by the end of 2020.
