How are refugees allocated to groups?

The Home Office will identify a refugee family to be resettled by your community group based on the support your group is able to provide. The Home Office will consider factors like the size of the property that you have procured and whether the accommodation would be suitable for a person with mobility difficulties, for example. Once the Home Office have identified a suitable family, they will ask for confirmation from your group and from your local authority that you feel able to meet the particular needs of this family. You are not able to ask the Home Office to match you with a particular refugee or family.
