We are grateful to over 300 local authorities for pledging their support to the UK’s resettlement schemes, enabling us to welcome over 27,000 vulnerable refugees to the UK since 2010.

The Home Office is committed to publishing data in an orderly way as part of the regular quarterly Immigration Statistics, in line with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.

The statistics, which include a local authority breakdown of resettlements, are available at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/immigration-statistics-quarterly-release

The latest statistics published on 28 November 2019 show that, in total since 2015, Enfield have resettled no refugees under the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme and four refugees under the Vulnerable Children’s Resettlement Scheme, as at the end of September 2019.
