You may be aware that the Isle of Wight has agreed to take 5 Syrian refugee families. Thus far we have only secured 1 house and we still need more. We need private offers of accommodation that meets the standard required by IW Council and landlords who are willing to accept the housing benefit rates, which are:
2 Bedroom weekly: £121.97 monthly: £528.54
3 Bedroom weekly: £149.59 monthly: £648.22
4 Bedroom weekly: £184.11 monthly: £797.81
In order for the families to have access to services ideally we are looking for properties in Newport, Ryde or Cowes but will consider other areas.
