Offering your home

In response to the war in Ukraine, the UK Government has launched their Homes for Ukraine scheme, which allows residents to provide spare rooms and unoccupied residential units for use by Ukrainian refugees. Offering your home is so generous and we’re so happy to see such an outpouring of support for refugees.

You can register your interest as an individual or community organisation on the Government’s Homes for Ukraine website.

In Lewisham, Lewisham Council and Refugee Council are working with prospective sponsors/hosts and refugees from Ukraine to support them through the Homes for Ukraine scheme. Lewisham Council has established a support service through the Refugee Council to support those arriving through the Homes for Ukraine scheme, as well as a dedicated web page with information for Ukrainian arrivals in Lewisham.
