Ways to help Ukraine | HBC newsroom
Homes for Ukraine the UK Government scheme will enable individuals, charities, community groups and businesses to volunteer accommodation and provide a route to safety for Ukrainians, and their immediate family members, forced to escape their homeland. Sponsors should provide accommodation for as long as they are able, but we have a minimum expectation of 6 months.
Refugees At Home is a UK charity which connects those with a spare room in their home to refugees and asylum seekers in need of somewhere to stay.
Make a financial donation:
One of the best ways to help is by donating cash through trusted charities and aid organisations, rather than donating goods.
Cash can be transferred quickly to areas where it is needed and individuals and aid organisations can use it to buy what is most needed. If you want to donate money, there are a number of charities providing humanitarian relief in Ukraine.
Make your donation safely
There are lots of other organisations across the UK and internationally who have launched appeals, and you may wish to donate through these organisations instead. There are some simple steps you can take to ensure your money is safe and being used effectively:
- Check the charity’s name and registration number using the search the charity register tool
- Most charities with an income of £5,000 or more must be registered, which means they are regulated by The Charity Commission
- Make sure the charity is genuine before giving any financial information
- If in doubt, ask the charity or organisation for more information
