There is a significant cross Government effort underway to ensure Afghans evacuated to the UK receive the support they need to rebuild their lives. This includes working at pace with local authorities, NGOs, and the commercial sector to secure employment and suitable housing and ensure they have the support they need.

We have seen more than 200 local authorities come forward with commitments to offer housing to displaced Afghans as part of our resettlement plans and we work closely with them to ensure housing meets the needs of those being resettled.
