Cumbria Leadership Board

The following statement was agreed at the Cumbria Leadership Board on Friday, 16 September 2016:

The Chair of Cumbria Leadership Board (CLB), Cllr Colin Glover, said:

“Today (Friday 16 September) the Cumbria Leadership Board has met and reaffirmed their commitment to make an offer to help resettle Syrian Refugees and their families in Cumbria.

“Over the coming months the county’s local authorities and partners will work together to establish a Cumbria Offer which will set out the number of refugees that can be resettled into Cumbria over the next three years, 2017-2020. Once the offer is finalised and agreed with government then a ‘matching process’ will take place,  this process will look at those refugees in established camps needing homes and support and the available support on offer from Cumbria to ensure that a compatible fit is made. If any of these matches prove successful then we could expect to see refugees arriving in Cumbria from Spring 2017.

“Finally, as this issue progresses, we will continue do all that we can to keep the residents of Cumbria are kept fully informed.”

The Cumbria Leadership Board includes the leaders of all the local authorities across Cumbria. The Chair of the CLB is Cllr Colin Glover, Leader of Carlisle City Council.
