UK offers £350 a month to citizens to shelter Ukrainian refugees


The UK government has announced £350 ($456) per month for each family opening their homes for refugees from Ukraine amid the crisis.

Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, governments around the world have been taking different measures to help Ukraine and its people. After witnessing massive destruction of infrastructure as well as people’s lives, the UK government and its people are welcoming refugees with open arms.


The government is moving to alleviate outrage over its response to the fastest-growing refugee crisis in Europe since World War II.

Britain has introduced a new scheme, “Home for Ukraine”, that would allow refugees from the war to come and live in the country even if they have no family ties, the government said on Sunday, March 13.

Under the new scheme of the UK, members of the public, businesses, charities and community groups must offer accommodation via a web page by the end of next week, the government said.

“The UK will stand behind Ukraine in their darkest hour, and the British public understands the need to get as many refugees to safety as quickly as we can,” said Michael Gove, the minister for housing.

According to the sources, the government estimated tens of thousands of Ukrainians could come to Britain via this route, with the first arrivals likely in around a week.

The number of refugees fleeing from Ukraine could rise further to more than 4 million, double the present estimates of about 2 million, the UN’s Refugee Agency said last week. The UK has so far issued visas to around 3,000 Ukrainians.
