Ukraine: Support for hosts

Planning for the future

Around the six-month stage we will visit hosts and guests to check in and see if you need any support. At the visit we will meet with both you and your guests separately to talk about:

  • What's working well
  • Making any improvements
  • If you need more support
  • Future plans

When you reach this stage in your hosting journey, a local council officer will get in touch with you to arrange an appointment.

Take time to talk to your guests about their future living arrangements. This will help them to decide and prepare for their next steps.

We have a guide for hosts (PDF) [180KB] to help when the time comes for guests to move on. There is a similar guide for guests available in Ukrainian (PDF) [146KB], Russian (PDF) [147KB] and English (PDF) [136KB]. GOV.UK have guidance which explains guests' options (opens new window). The guide is also available in Ukrainian (opens new window)and Russian (opens new window).

The Government has also produced advice for guests on renting private accommodation (opens new window). Our local information on renting property (PDF) [129KB] might be helpful too.

Please update us as soon as possible about any changes to your hosting arrangement.

Ensure you update us if you are choosing to end your hosting commitment at six months. The more notice we have, the more effectively we can support transition arrangements and re-matches.

Early notice is also important if your guest has found a new host in a different part of the UK. The new council will need to approve the match and the move. This is in order for the host to be eligible for the thank you payment. We therefore need to contact the new council on your guest's behalf as soon as possible.

More information for hosts how have sponsored guests is available in the Government's Homes for Ukraine: Guidance for hosts (opens new window).
