Building a home is important for all of us and since 2016 ICN has been contracted by Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole Councils to resettle Syrian refugee families arriving in the UK through the Government’s Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme (SVPRS). This scheme officially came to an end in 2021, with the Home Office transferring to a broader programme named the UK Resettlement Scheme. Bournemouth and Poole Council announced their commitment to the UKRS, and ICN will continue our contracted work under this new scheme.
We work closely with local authorities and volunteers to support families to find their feet, build healthy relationships, and successfully integrate into our community. ICN liaises with local stakeholders and statutory providers, ensuring that every family can build a future in Dorset.
