Role description

Homes for Ukraine is a bespoke government scheme which will offer a route to those who want to come to the UK who have someone here willing to provide them with a home. It will enable individuals, charities, community groups and businesses to volunteer accommodation and provide a route to safety for Ukrainians, and their immediate family members, forced to escape their homeland.


Sponsors should provide accommodation for as long as they are able, but there is a minimum expectation of 6 months.

If you have a named person who you wish to sponsor you should get in contact with them directly and prepare to fill in a visa application with all their details and yours. The visa application will go live on Friday 18th March.


People wanting to be sponsors who do not know anyone personally fleeing Ukraine can also record their interest in being a sponsor. As many arrivals as possible will be welcomed, based on the number of sponsors.  

People arriving under this scheme will be able to:  

  • Live and work in the UK for up to three years  
  • Access healthcare, benefits, employment support, education, and English language tuition.

You can record your interest as an individual or as an organisation (for example charity, business, community group). Please read the FAQs first  before recording your offer of support.

Desired Qualities

Kindness, compassion, an interest in helping others, willingness to support others.

How your time will help our organisation

You will be helping others in their hour of need and the Homes for Ukraine Scheme offers a lifeline to those forced to flee their homes.

Practical Considerations

A residential spare room or separate self-contained accommodation that is unoccupied. The accommodation must be available for at least six months, fit for people to live in, and suitable for the number of people to be accommodated. You may offer support on things like access to benefits, registering with a GP, school placements etc. however there are other organisations who will be able to offer support on these. Those arriving will have met standard security checks. Sponsors will also be subject to checks.
