Support for asylum seekers and refugees

Homes for Ukraine scheme

The Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme allows Ukrainian nationals and their family members to come to the UK if they have a named sponsor under the Homes for Ukraine Scheme. Information about applying for a visa under the scheme can be found on the government website.

If you are a sponsor or interested in applying to be a sponsor and host a family or individual from Ukraine, you can find information about the scheme here:Homes for Ukraine scheme: frequently asked questions on website

In Newham, we have produced an information sheet for sponsors who have been matched with a family or friend via this scheme. The information lets you know about the checks that we will be carrying out as part of this scheme.  Information Sheet for Sponsor and Landlord Consent Form (PDF)
