The decision to accept a family for resettlement is a joint decision by your group and the local authority. The county council is consulted on our agreement to accept the family for resettlement based on whether the proposed family’s needs can be met in the local area. Depending on each family, individuals from key statutory agencies (e.g. Health, Social Care and Education) are called on to inform this decision. We would offer your group our feedback and be advised of your group’s decision before advising the Home Office.
