Ukraine conflict: Support and information

Updated 9th June 2022

Homes for Ukraine Scheme

SITUATION UPDATE

The County Council continues to work with key local partners to enable support and assistance to Ukrainian refugees (guests) arriving in Hampshire under phase one of the Government’s Homes for Ukraine scheme. The focus remains on conducting home visits and ensuring key information is shared with guests and sponsors efficiently. Partner organisations include District and Borough councils and Hampshire & Isle of Wight Fire & Rescue Service, as well as the NHS, and Hampshire Constabulary.

Home visits will be undertaken by a County Council Family Support Worker, as well as a Fire Safety Officer from the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Fire & Rescue Service. You will receive a telephone call from the County Council to arrange this.

For enquiries regarding initial visits only, please contact childrens.services@hants.gov.uk  

Visits to sponsors’ homes continue to be arranged and undertaken at pace across the county and will include visits booked at weekends.

Please see below flowchart containing information for Sponsors.
Homes For Ukraine Sponsor Guidance Flowchart

Information for both sponsors and guests can be found on the Hampshire County Council website: Guidance for sponsors | Hampshire County Council (hants.gov.uk). Here you will find details of the checks that will be carried out during your home visit, welcome packs in English and translated languages and information about how to apply for school, college and further education.

The Government has provided advice to sponsors and arriving guests regarding access to NHS healthcare in their Welcome Guide for Ukrainians arriving in the UK - GOV.UK, along with a wealth of further information about life in the UK.

We have put together this pack which includes local information, as well as information from the Government and other local partners - Hart Welcome Pack.
