As we approach the anniversary of the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces we’re appealing for more hosts to support those refugees who have been forced to flee their country and offer them host accommodation.

Residents are encouraged to come forward if they can provide rent-free lodging for a minimum of six months, whether that be a spare room or any other type of accommodation.

Each host receives a thank you payment of £350 per month from the UK Government with the potential to rise to £500 per month dependent of the guests length of time in the UK.

Cllr Paul Roberts, Lead Member for Partnerships and Community Safety, said, “I am really thankful to everyone who has already thrown open their doors to people in need during this exceptionally difficult time for Ukraine.

“Wrexham has a proud history of welcoming refugees, and it has been wonderful to see the warm reception for Ukrainian refugees.

“I would urge anyone who is thinking about offering up a spare room in their home, please get in touch with us and join others in providing a safe haven for people forced to leave their country – you could make a real difference to someone’s life.

“Our resettlement team will be happy to give you some more information about how it all works.”
