SCT Syrian Refugee Resettlement Project – latest!


Holidays and bureaucratic requirements mean that progress has been a little slower in the past month. However, the good news is that we have heard from the Home Office this week to say that our application has been approved in principle. There are some small points they are requesting us to confirm. After that, we will need to provide a brief description of the accommodation we can offer. This will then be sent to the refugee camps to offer to an appropriate family.

In the meanwhile, the lease has been signed by St Peter’s PCC and returned to the solicitors. A Schedule of Condition of the property now has to be prepared and agreed by the PCC, before it is attached to the lease and we can take possession. We will then be in a position to furnish and equip the house to make it as welcoming as possible.
