Returns and Reintegration Fund - Turkey

The Returns and Reintegration Fund aims to reduce the number of foreign national prisoners and failed asylum seekers living in UK.

About the Fund:

As part of the Government’s strategy to manage migration to the UK, the Returns and Reintegration Fund is working to increase significantly the number of foreign national prisoners and failed asylum seekers who return to their countries of origin and to ensure that those who return voluntarily are effectively reintegrated.

This is a cross-government fund that FCO finances together with UK Border Agency, DFID, and Ministry of Justice. The objectives of the previous Migration Funds run by the Home Office and the FCO have been refined to focus on programmes and projects which will facilitate a greater number of returns of individuals to their countries of origin in a sustainable manner.

Discussion of migration issues is an important part of the Government’s relationship with other countries and one of the top priorities for the Foreign Office. We want to work together with other governments to increase the numbers of foreign national prisoners and failed asylum seekers who return to their own countries and remain there. The fund will enable us to support countries which face the biggest challenges.

How to apply for funding?

If you have a project idea, please contact us first and discuss your idea. If we agree that the idea fits with our objectives, and funds are available at that time, you will need to develop a project bid using a standard FCO form. We must submit the project proposal to London. A programme board considers the applications and approves successful ones.
