I want to support Homes for Ukraine
Somerset has a proud record of welcoming refugees and we are united in support for the people of Ukraine.
South Somerset District Council are working together with Somerset County Council, Mendip District Council, Sedgemoor District Council, Somerset West and Taunton Council, the Somerset NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, Avon and Somerset Police, local charities and community groups to carry out checks and help Ukrainian refugees settle safely in Somerset.
A new webpage has been set up to provide information and support for Somerset households who have volunteered to sponsor Ukrainian refugees. This includes a digital form which should be completed by sponsors who are matched with refugees. This will help local services to carry out the checks sponsors need to safely welcome their guests.
On this webpage you will also find information on other ways Somerset residents can support Ukraine, with links to local and national charities and helplines.
