Havering council to offer accommodation and support to Afghan refugees.

  • thehaveringdaily.co.uk

Afghan refugees have started to arrive in the UK after fleeing their homes from the Taliban.

The first batch of refugees were photographed arriving in England yesterday with their families, fleeing the horrors of their former life.

It is believed all councils are expected to rehouse their share of refugees across the United Kingdom.

Havering’s Leader of the Council, Councillor Damian White told the Havering Daily:

“We are working with London Councils and other local partners to ensure we can play our part in offering accommodation and the much wider scope of support people fleeing the threat of death will need.

“We recognise and thank those who have already sacrificed so much in supporting our brave armed forces during their time in Afghanistan.”

Current London Mayor Sadiq Khan has welcomed Afghan refugees to London and has announced plans to help city councils and housing associations support the arrival of these refugees.

Khan has also said that he will expand his ‘Right to buy back’ fund to help London councils purchase homes that can be used to resettle families arriving from Afghanistan.

    I hope it’s mostly families rather than just young men. A lot of the film I’ve watched I’ve seen probably only 20% of the refugees are women and children, the rest are young men . What happened to women and children first ?!

      I find it really hard to comprehend that Sadiq Khan will exercise his right to buy back a stable British family home to house a family that has just arrived in our country. Where are the families that will be uprooted live to make way for our new arrivals. Also, many of our homeless are the rejected & abandoned poor souls that fought for our new arrivals in their god forsaken country.
      Time to look after our own first and not try to police the world.
