ALSO DISCUSSED AT THE FORUM HELD ON MONDAY 28TH JANUARY 2019 –

Are you a Landlord who could help with our Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme?   In September 2015, the UK Government announced that over the next 5 years, up to 20,000 Syrians in need of protection would be accepted into the UK.  In July 2017 the scheme was expanded to include other refugees who have fled the conflict in Syria but whom do not have Syrian nationality. Caerphilly County Borough Council was one of the first local authorities in Wales to accept families under this scheme, and we are currently working with a number of landlords who support the Caerphilly Private Landlord Forum who are assisting us with housing a number of families as part of this scheme.  However, the Council is currently looking for even more suitable properties to lease from private landlords to house families supported within this project. The Home Office provides funding for all individuals resettled within the scheme.  All families resettled receive a support service commissioned by CCBC, regular visits by our partner managing agent will ensure your accommodation is kept in good condition throughout the period of the tenancy, rent will be paid to you by BACS transfer. More than 250,000 Syrians have lost their lives in the last 5 years of conflict . More than 11 million others have been forced from their homes.  More than 4.5 million people have fled Syria.  These families are ordinary people who live ordinary lives but have been touched by brutal events.  If you are a landlord with a vacant property who maybe able to help and meet the criteria then why not call for more...
