Response to the Syrian refugee crisis

Published Friday, 11 September 2015

Following the Prime Minister's announcement that the UK will be accepting 20,000 refugees over the next five years, local authorities are waiting for guidance from the Government on the next stage.

In the meantime we are encouraging residents who would like to offer housing to email customerservices@east-northamptonshire.gov.uk with their contact details. We will then contact them directly when new information is available.

We also suggest that residents who want to show support now should use a search engine to find local groups who are raising money and collecting clothing on behalf of the refugees.
