Homes for Ukraine

Homes for Ukraine is a UK Government Scheme allowing people across the UK to offer up their spare room or accommodation to host a Ukrainian individual or family fleeing war.

What is a host?

A host is a person, family or a community that can offer a place to stay and is willing to confirm that in an Ukrainians visa application. 

How can I get involved?

The process for offering your support is very straightforward. It can be outlined as follows:

  1. Register your interest as a sponsor for matching on the Homes for Ukraine website.
  2. Complete two online training sessions, a webinar and an e-learning course with Homes for Ukraine.
  3. Allow Pembrokeshire County Council to complete the following checks
    • DBS Check
    • Safeguarding Check
    • Home Safety Assessment
  4. Match with Ukrainian guest and await their arrival.


It is important to understand that whilst you are hosting you may be asked to support your guests with accessing relevant services and settling in the community. Ukrainian Guests are not native English speakers and therefore they may ask you for further help.

It should also be noted that a host should not charge the Ukrainian guest/s any rent.

If you have further questions, queries or concerns please contact the Community Hub on 01437 776301.
