Would you like to give a home to an Ukranian Refugee?

Leominster and surrounding area Ukrainian Support Hub

Are you interested in hosting a Ukrainian family, or supporting people from Ukraine once they arrive?

Hereford diocese has formed a partnership with Citizens UK to connect people who want to host with people fleeing Ukraine.  As coordinators for our local area, we are able to help with the linking of hosts in the UK with guest from Ukraine, as well as supporting with translating and the visa application process.

We are also working together with a range of others support hubs and charities, including Leominster Aid for Ukraine, to build a local support network. This is for both hosts and guests before and after they arrive. Support can include a whole range of things e.g. offering transport, help registering with schools & GPs, donating items to help people settle in, cooking meals, connecting people to social activities.

We are currently looking for people who are able to host our Ukrainian guests. However, you may not be able to host but have some time that you could kindly give to help with organising events, fundraising, transport etc.

If you’re interested in hosting or are already hosting, or are able to offer support, please contact myself, Lesley Grady (lesleygrady@me.com 07525159081) or Ian Shanks (07717 659422).
