The Crisis in Ukraine
In response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the UK Government’s newly-launched Homes for Ukraine scheme, NACCOM and our members have seen a significant increase in the number of people interested in hosting refugees in their home.
Please note that NACCOM members primarily host people already in the UK asylum and immigration system who are experiencing destitution and homelessness. If you are interested in hosting as part of the Government’s Homes for Ukraine scheme, please visit their official website for more information, as well as Reset’s matching service, which helps to safely match Ukrainian refugees with households in the UK. (NACCOM’s full statement on the Homes for Ukraine scheme can be found here).
If you are open to hosting someone who is experiencing destitution and homelessness in the asylum or immigration system, then please complete the enquiry form below and we will forward your contact details to a NACCOM member in your area. Around 3,000 people each year face homelessness and destitution because of their immigration status – there is a growing need for hosts who can provide safe, stable, temporary homes to support and enable people to rebuild their lives and move on from destitution and homelessness. More information on hosting can be found in our Hosting Resources section.
Please also note that NACCOM itself does not run a hosting scheme – we work with our members across the UK to direct prospective hosts to projects in their area, or a national hosting scheme, as appropriate. NACCOM member organisations do not make placements based on any stated preference the host has regarding the nationality of their guest. If your preference is to host someone from Ukraine, then unfortunately we won’t be able to pass your enquiry on.
Due to the overwhelming interest in hosting, you may not receive a reply from our members immediately – please be patient and they will get in touch as soon as they can. Thank you for your interest in hosting and your support.
