In England, the number of homeless Ukrainian families is rapidly increasing – in 1 month they have increased by 22%, local authorities demand urgent decisions from the government. The Independent writes about this.

Since February 24, about 1,915 Ukrainian households who are at risk of becoming homeless have turned to local authorities for help, and 350 displaced families have asked for help in the last month alone.

Charity organizations have warned that the problem will worsen in the coming months as agreements with the sponsors of the “Housing for Ukraine” program are coming to an end. Of these, 25% said they would provide housing for 6 months or less.

About 70% of Ukrainian refugees arrived with children. According to statistics, 585 families participating in the “Housing for Ukraine” program applied for help after their housing arrangements collapsed. Another 415 families found themselves in a similar situation.

Others could not find accommodation upon arrival in the UK or found it unsuitable. Liberal MP Leila Moran urges the government to act decisively.

“Ukrainians who fled Putin's war machines should get the support of the UK. It is important that sponsor support increases as inflation and energy costs rise,” she said.

Lord Harrington, Minister for Refugees under Boris Johnson's government, has urged the Treasury to raise refugee payments from £350 to £700 as the cost of living rises.

The Housing for Ukraine program – how does it work?

The British program Home for Ukraine opened on March 18. From now on, Ukrainians apply for visas under the program of Ukrainian applicants who have resident sponsors in the UK

Resident sponsors can be relatives, friends and acquaintances who legally reside in the UK and want to host Ukrainian refugees. The application can be completed by a Ukrainian or a British sponsor.

New applications to the Scottish Government and the Welsh Government as a sponsor are currently suspended.

Focus already wrote, that Ukrainian refugees in Poland can get free apartments in Zamosc. The European Foundation has allocated almost 1 million euros for this purpose.
