Five more Syrian families to be rehomed in district

FIVE more Syrian refugee families are to be found homes in the district.

In 2017, five Syrian refugee families were housed in the district as part of the government’s agreement in 2015 to provide sanctuary to 20,000 Syrian refugees over a five-year period. The families are now integrated to their communities, along with 25 other families across Warwickshire.

Warwick District Council, in collaboration with the Strategic Migration Partnership and Warwickshire County Council, has now agreed to provide a home for a further five families in private rented accommodation – hopefully by next year.

District housing spokesman Coun Peter Phillips said: “This progressive initiative allows those fleeing persecution a chance of settling into a new stable home-life.

“The five families we have already housed in the district are thriving well, but there is always more we can do, so I am pleased to take up the opportunity to support five new families.”
