BBC Radio Manchester Interview on VPR Scheme

It has been one year since the first Syrian refugees were resettled to the UK under the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement scheme. We spoke to BBC Radio Manchester on 17 November in light of recent findings that Greater Manchester has not taken in any Syrian refugees through the scheme. We noted our disappointment that an area as diverse and welcoming as Manchester has not played its part, but also noted the need for greater involvement and support from the central Government to support local councils in this regard.
