Dear G Taylor,

 

Thank you for your recent request, submitted under the FOIA 2000. Our
response is as follows:

 

1 How many refugees did the Authority take?

Between 1st January 2017 and 18th September 2019, Wirral Council has
received and resettled 129 refugees as part of the wider Liverpool City
Region commitment to the Syrian Vulnerable Persons programme.  Some of
those people have since moved out of the area and so 123 people still
remain in Wirral

 

2 Which general areas of the borough were they housed?

Refugees who have been resettled through this programme have been placed
in area where homes have become available to meet their needs.  The
majority of these areas have been on the eastern side of the borough.

 

3 How many were housed in social housing?

All refugees who have been resettled in Wirral through the Syrian
Vulnerable Persons programme have been placed in the social rented sector.

 

I trust this will be of assistance to your enquiries.
