The UK Government has announced a scheme by which UK residents can sponsor Ukrainian refugees and provide a home. Details are sparse at best at this stage around important details like how sponsors will be vetted (guests will be traumatised women and children, so being a sponsor and host is not just providing accommodation). However, the Government’s website to register as a sponsor is available and, if you’re interested, please do take a look and register.
Other, non-Governmental, schemes are also being set up. However, be aware that safeguarding may be an issue with these schemes as well. Please ensure that all offers and requests for accommodation and support go through official channels! In particular, don’t make contact over social media - this is not safe for either party.
The first charity to agree to participate in the matching of hosts and refugees according to the Government Homes for Ukraine sponsorship scheme is Reset Communities, with a web address that looks very similar to the official UK Government one but is slightly different.
The Vita Network’s Safe Refuge page is another very useful resource for anyone considering hosting a Ukrainian family.
If you’re wondering about sponsoring a refugee, RESET Training and Support has produced a Homes for Ukraine Sponsor Toolkit (PDF)
