We have warmly welcomed thousands of Afghan nationals to this country who have worked alongside our Armed Forces and diplomats in Afghanistan.
On 1 September, we announced ‘Operation Warm Welcome’ to ensure Afghans arriving in the UK receive the vital support they need to rebuild their lives, find work, pursue education and integrate into their local communities. This includes the allocation of local authority sourced accommodation across the UK as well as Ministry of Defence accommodation. Homes will be matched carefully to families.
