How can you help those affected by the war in Ukraine

Homes for Ukraine: register your interest

If you want to offer a home to people fleeing Ukraine, you can become a ‘sponsor’ as part of the Homes for Ukraine scheme. Use this service to register your interest in becoming a sponsor. You can register as an individual or as an organisation on the Governments Homes for Ukraine: register your interest page.

Apply for a Ukraine Family Scheme visa

The Ukraine Family Scheme allows applicants to join family members or extend their stay in the UK. Learn more at the Governments Apply for a Ukraine Family Scheme visa page.

Other ways to help:

If you want to help but cannot offer accommodation, you can donate to the Disasters Emergency Committee. This group of charities work on the ground in Ukraine and neighbouring countries to provide essentials, including food, water, shelter and medical assistance.

People wishing to donate, to help with the Ukraine appeal, should do so as a financial donation through the appropriate channels, such as the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC). This is the preferred option rather than by making physical donations of goods as these can cause logistical issues.

Welsh Government Guidance can be found on the Welsh Governments Ukraine: support for people affected page.
