Ukraine crisis

Find ways to donate to help Ukraine and more information about the Homes for Ukraine scheme and support available in Westminster.

We want to reach out to all our Ukrainian residents, and anyone with friends and families affected by, or concerned about, events in Ukraine.

Host an individual or family in Westminster

We are grateful to have received a good response to the Homes for Ukraine scheme from residents in Westminster, with many people volunteering to open their homes to Ukrainian individuals and families.

However, as the war in Ukraine continues, we are expecting more refugees to arrive seeking sanctuary. For Ukrainians already in the UK, many of their sponsor placements are coming to an end and they will therefore need alternative accommodation. We are now asking for more people to open their homes to host those who have been displaced.

By signing up as a sponsor, you will be providing a safe home to an individual or family who has fled the war in Ukraine. Sponsors are fully supported by the council’s dedicated Ukraine Response Team and have the option to receive monthly payments to support them with any associated costs.
