People who have worked for the UK Government and British Military in Afghanistan and their families are being urgently relocated to UK by the British government due to the risk to their lives following the troop withdrawal from the country.
We have agreed to support this programme and we’ll be coordinating resettlement support for up to 10 families in the Wrexham area.
Families will be supported with accommodation in the private rented sector when they arrive, integration and employability support will be provided by the Red Cross and other partner organisations.
We are now looking for family accommodation in the private housing sector for these families.
Due to the urgent nature of the resettlement we are taking the unusual step of appealing directly to any landlords with properties that they feel may be suitable for a resettled family to please contact email@example.com as soon as possible to discuss further.
“Afghan Relocation Scheme received unanimous support”
Cllr Hugh Jones, Lead Member for Communities, Partnerships, Public Protection and Community Safety, said: “The proposal to take part in the Afghan Relocation Scheme received unanimous support from members and we know that Wrexham will welcome families who have done so much to support our troops and the British Government whilst they were on active duty overseas. If you have a suitable property please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”
Cllr David Griffiths, Armed Forces Champion and Lead Member for Housing, said, “I was proud to support this proposal to offer eligible families much needed support in order to ensure they remain safe following their service to UK troops and the UK Government.
“Without their help and the sacrifice of their own safety the deaths of our armed forces personal would have been much higher. Their lives, and those of their families will be at risk if we are not able to offer refuge and show our gratitude for their service.”
