Helping Ukrainian guests settle in Rushmoor
The War in Ukraine - information and support
Since the Homes for Ukraine scheme was launched by the government in 2022, we have continued to work with Hampshire County Council and other key local partners to welcome and support Ukrainian refugees (guests) arriving in Aldershot and Farnborough.
Local residents (sponsors) have stepped forward to host Ukrainian families in their homes and properties, helping to provide much needed stability to allow families to plan their futures. This process is coordinated by Hampshire County Council and more information can be found in Hampshire County Council’s guidance for sponsors.
Guests can find information about a range of topics including registering with a doctor and getting a school or college place for children in the guidance.
We have a well-established network of partners who have provided key support to, and community connection for, newly-arrived families, and with who we continue to work with to help Ukrainian guests to settle and integrate in Rushmoor.
