Homes for Ukraine Scheme

Homes for Ukraine is a government sponsorship scheme that allows people and organisations in the UK to offer Ukrainians fleeing the war a home.

The Homes for Ukraine Scheme matches local hosts with refugees who are fleeing the war, even if they have no ties to the UK. A host family receives £600 per month for providing a home and support to their guests.

There is no limit on this scheme and we will welcome as many Ukrainians as wish to come and have matched sponsors.

Those who come under this scheme will also be granted leave for an initial period of 12 months and able to work and access public services.
