Homes for Ukraine Scheme
Earlier this week (14 March) the government announced some details of a new Homes for Ukraine scheme.
The Homes for Ukraine scheme allows individuals, charities, community groups and businesses in the UK to volunteer accommodation and bring Ukrainians to safety – including those with no family ties to the UK.
Anyone in the UK – of any nationality, providing they have at least six months leave to remain in the UK – can apply to be a host. It is free to apply.
You will be required to host Ukrainian refugees in your own home or in another property, for at least six months.
Hosts will be vetted by the government and Ukrainian applicants will undergo security checks before being matched with a host.
Host households in the UK will be offered a tax-free payment of £350 a month for up to 12 months, regardless of how many individuals they support.
