Warrington stands ready to play its part in providing support for people fleeing the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. 

The government has announced it is temporarily widening eligibility criteria for family migration visas, so more people with relatives living in the UK can apply to come here. Ukrainian nationals who are currently staying, working or studying in the UK can also extend their existing visas by visiting the GOV.UK website.

The government has also launched a sponsorship scheme to make sure that Ukrainians who have been forced to flee their homes have a route to safety. The scheme will match people, charities, businesses and community groups to Ukrainians who do not have family ties to the UK.

Get in touch

You can also email ukraine@warrington.gov.uk if you have any questions or ideas for how you might want to support those affected by the conflict in Ukraine.

Housing checks for people who want to support

Our housing team will conduct checks to ensure the suitability of your homes for hosting Ukranian refguees. We will:

  1. Inspect the property to establish whether there are any serious hazards under the Housing Health & Safety Rating System brought in by the Housing Act 2004.
  2. Determine whether your property will be overcrowded under the terms of the Housing Act 1985 or the LACORS Bedroom standard guidance used to interpret the Crowding & Space hazard under the Housing Act 2004
  3. Check that there are working smoke detectors at each floor level on the escape route (these can be provided by the Fire Service if necessary)
  4. Check that there is a gas safety certificate (where relevant) or gas appliances are new or are regularly serviced
  5. Check that any room containing a solid fuel burning appliance (eg wood burner) has a carbon monoxide detector installed
Hosts can claim £50 per person

You can contact the British Red Cross support line number 0808 196 3651 between 10am-6pm. You will need to show passport evidence and a visa stamp to claim £50 per person, up to maximum family of six, within 14 days of arrival.
