Guests already living in the district will generally need less support than someone who is just arriving in the country, as they’ll usually have already registered for essential services, found jobs, formed communities and will have been learning or improving their English.
Some guests who have already settled in the district will need to find new host accommodation, usually because of a change in their host’s circumstances, or the initial sponsorship period has come to an end. This is called ‘rematching’.
We keep a list of potential hosts in case guests in the district need rematching, but we need more potential hosts to come forward.
If you have any spare space in your home or a self-contained annexe and you’re considering hosting a Ukrainian guest or family, please contact us. We can answer any questions and add you to the list to get in touch if a rematch we think might be a good fit becomes available.
If you are asked through social media or a community group to host a guest or family who are already in the UK, please contact us before committing to host them so we can discuss everything with you and arrange the necessary checks.
