The procurement of housing for supported asylum seekers who are destitute is carried out by private providers, through the private housing market, under the Asylum and Accommodation and Support Contracts.

Asylum seekers from Napier or any other contingency accommodation site are therefore not allocated to Local Authorities to source housing.
