Following annoucement of Goverment’s ‘Full Dispersal Model’ which will allow the Home office to procure properties in all Local Authority Areas across England, Scotland and Wales we would like to invite you for a discussion drawing on the experience of existing dispersal areas.
The aim of the session was to support LAs new to dispersal, and to look at wraparound services that can have a positive impact on the experience of people going through the asyum system.
Collectively we put together a set of Consultation Asks to help LAs think through their responses
We heard from several local authority partners, as well as key third sector organisations.
