Homes For Ukraine

Through the UK Government’s sponsorship scheme, members of the public are invited to provide accommodation in their own homes to people fleeing the war. To find out more about this scheme and to register your interest in taking part, go to: Homes for Ukraine

Please read the Homes for Ukraine scheme: Frequently Asked Questions on the Gov.uk website for more details.

We’ve teamed up with the Scottish Government to run online information sessions for people in Scotland hosting refugees from Ukraine.

These sessions are for anyone who is interested in hosting, or has registered to host people from Ukraine, either privately, or through the Scottish Government’s Scottish Government’s Ukraine Super Sponsor scheme. The sessions will be held on Zoom and will last around 90 minutes. For the times and dates upcoming sessions and to register your place, click here.
