WLCost text: The financial modelling for this project is based on three different service user volume scenarios depending on the number of Asylum Seekers within the UK requiring support. The figures used here are those representing the midpoint volume, however, the Outline Business Case presents a range given the inherent complexity regarding service user volumes.
