If you have an interest in hosting a Ukrainian family you can register on this website. We know many people have already signed up on the UK Government website or through another organisation to register an interest in being a host family– there is no problem registering in more than one place.
If you are in the UK you are probably aware that the Government ‘Homes for Ukraine’ scheme is expected to run along two tracks. People who have a named Ukrainian contact will be processed first while those who don't have a named Ukrainian contact will potentially be paired with a family at random at a later date. Registering for the 'Homes for Ukraine' scheme for a named person will be faster than waiting for the Home Office to pair hosts with Ukrainian families. This is why you can still express interest here even if you have signed up without a named person on the Government website.
We are currently connecting with Ukrainian refugees in order to find the best route forward for them. As you can imagine, the past few weeks have been traumatic for families who have fled Ukraine. Most of them are still deciding what they want to do in the immediate future, while still coming to terms with all that has happened. We don't want to rush anyone into deciding what is best for them to do next, and we are also sensitive to the fact that most Ukrainians are very concerned about being isolated in a new country.
We would just like to emphasise that we are not sure how many people will want to come here. If we don't end up finding a match for you with a named Ukrainian family, there are many other ways you can support Ukrainian refugees.
