12 Welcome Hubs in Britain 

The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) is leading delivery of a £43.1 million HMG funded national ‘Welcome Programme’ to support BN(O) status holders and their families to help them to successfully settle in their new communities.  


There are 12 new Welcome Hubs, across the whole of the UK, to prepare for the arrival of BN(O) status holders and their families, ensuring they have their own ‘welcome’ in place and local areas have capacity to integrate the new arrivals into communities. This is using the existing infrastructure of the Strategic Migration Partnerships.   

Strategic Migration Partnerships (SMPs) are Local Government led partnerships funded by, but independent of, the Home Office. 

The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) 正在帶領實施一項由英國政府資助的 4,310 萬英鎊的全國「Welcome Programme ~ 歡迎計劃」,以支持 BN(O) 持有人及其家屬,幫助他們成功定居新社區。

整個英國有 12 個新的 WelcomeHubs,這是利用 Strategic Migration Partnerships 的現有基礎設施,為 BN(O) 持有人及其家屬到英國社區做好準備,以確保新來的香港人融入新的社區,並且在社區受到歡迎。

Strategic Migration Partnerships 是地方政府主導, 由內政部資助,但獨立於內政部。
