We are all shocked and saddened by the situation in Ukraine and we stand with councils across Kent to welcome refugees fleeing the conflict.
Homes for Ukraine scheme
This scheme offers a route to Ukrainians who want to come to the UK who have someone here willing to provide them with a home. It will enable individuals, charities, community groups and businesses to volunteer accommodation and provide a route to safety for Ukrainians, and their immediate family members, forced to escape their homeland.
If you have any questions about offering a home to people fleeing the conflict, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ukraine family scheme
The Government’s Ukraine Family Scheme allows applicants to join family members or extend their stay in the UK. Ukrainians with valid Ukrainian passports who are eligible, can complete their application online and will not need to go to a Visa Application Centre. Eligible applicants will be able to live, work and study in the UK and access public funds.
Charities providing help and support in Ukraine
The Government has said that one of the best ways to help is by donating cash rather than donating goods. Cash can be transferred quickly to areas where it is needed. Individuals and aid organisations can use it to buy what they need most.
