In early November this year DCLG announced the Controlling Migration Fund, which is designed to support local areas facing pressures linked to recent immigration.

The Fund will be available over the 4 years from 2016-17 to 2019-20, and is in 2 parts:

  • a local service impacts part of £100 million, to help English local authorities and their communities experiencing high and unexpected volumes of immigration to ease pressures on local services
  • an enforcement part worth £40 million to direct enforcement action against people in the UK illegally in order to reduce the pressure on local areas

On 18th January Kamran Quadri, from the DCLG Migration and Syria Team will be in Kent to talk to colleagues about this fund, and opportunities for Kent with this fund.
