QuoteGood to hear checks are happening. I m in Kent and I called yesterday to Kent county council who said it was the government who would be doing the checks 😩🤨🤨Anyone else know anything?
QuoteHope this information might help those still waiting.This morning I had a phonecall from my council to check that names are correct of those I am sponsoring and to check my mobile number as we have now been put on the network for social services and to expect social services to come round, either before or after they arrive. Just to clarify we have not yet had permission form for them to arrive in UK but it's given me hope that things are moving in the right direction. She couldn't give me any information on timescale though. Also wherever I will be meeting them, be it airport or ferry port ,there will also be people from my council to help.
QuoteWe are in Cornwall, they have told that we MUST arrange and complete the basic DBS checks online through the UK government website. We also had to complete a form from the council about the accommodation, and include photos. All this had to be done before they would tell the UK government that the initial checks were completed... Yes, we did pay the £23 fee for each adult in our household...
