Homes for Ukraine

More than 12 million Ukrainians have fled their homes since Russian forces invaded Ukraine on 24 February this year. In the two months since, the UK has issued more than 86,000 visas to refugees fleeing the conflict, and more than 100,000 people signed up to offer their homes on the day registrations for the Government’s flagship Homes for Ukraine scheme opened. Every day, people fleeing the conflict are being given sanctuary here in Britain. 

It has not all been plain sailing. The scheme has suffered criticism for delayed visa processing and complexity – and the Government has been clear that improvements need to be made. But Homes for Ukraine also represents a fundamentally new approach to resettlement – giving people the stability and support of a family rather than the isolation and expense of a hotel. What can we do to make sure it is a success, and what lessons does it pose for future crises – and indeed other refugees already in the UK?
