Interim Payment

Ukrainian people arriving under the Homes for Ukraine scheme are eligible for an interim payment of £200 from UK Government for subsistence costs to support them until they can access other sources of income. This money can be used for essential items and also as a contribution to food and transport costs. This is administered by Pembrokeshire County Council. The payment does not need to be repaid and it belongs to the Ukrainian guest.

This will usually be paid by issuing a pre-paid credit card but in some cases will be given as cash. 

Lead Workers will make sure that the Interim Payment is issued upon one of the first visits and will advise on the application for Universal Credit. This can take the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) between 4-6 weeks to process.

Please contact us on or 01437 776301 if you have not received your payment.
