Other ways to help locally
We welcome the enthusiasm of community groups who wish to help the refugees arriving in their local areas. Please bear with us for now and don’t rush into putting lots of provision in place as we are trying to avoid duplication and make sure the provision meets the needs of the Ukrainian people arriving here.
We need to make sure we neither have too much provision in some places or gaps elsewhere; so we can do this best by working together. We also need to see how successful the matching process is and whether all of the generous offers of accommodation are taken up.
Please let us know if your community group wishes to help by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
