UK individuals, charities, community groups and businesses can now record their interest in supporting Ukrainians fleeing the war through the government’s new Homes for Ukraine scheme.  The first phase of this scheme will allow sponsors in the UK to nominate a named Ukrainian or Ukrainian family to stay with them in their home or in a separate property. Sponsors will be asked to provide homes or a spare room rent-free for a minimum of six months. Those who sponsor a Ukrainian individual or family will not see their household benefit entitlements affected as a result. If this is something you would be interested in, you can find out more here.
