Decision Maker: Cabinet Member - Adult Social Care Delivery

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To seek approval to utilise UK Resettlement Scheme (UKRS) grant funding received by the County Council from the Home Office to support unaccompanied asylum-seeking children (UASC).


In coming to this decision I have given due and full regard to the requirements of the public sector equality duty contained in section 149 of the Equality Act 2010 (“the Act”) by reference to the law itself and also the relevant Equality Impact Assessment, which was prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Act.


Having fully considered all the available information, I have decided to reject the alternative options and take the recommended decision to:


Approve the allocation of £1.5 million from the UKRS grant to the children’s social services team for the purpose of supporting and accommodating unaccompanied asylum-seeking children (UASC) arriving in Gloucestershire during 2023/24.


 For the reasons set out in the report.
