Offer a home to a Ukrainian

The government has launched ‘Homes for Ukraine’ and invited individuals, charities, community groups and businesses to volunteer accommodation and provide a route to safety for Ukrainians forced to escape their homeland.

UK based sponsors will be asked to provide accommodation for at least six months. Ukrainian people arriving under the scheme will be able to live and work in the UK for up to three years and access healthcare, benefits, education, and English language tuition.

People and organisations who want to help are asked to register their interest on the government website.
