Homes Needed for Ukranian Refugees

It’s been two years since the war began in Ukraine and Pembrokeshire Council’s Resettlement and Migration Team is asking for more people to offer a home for Ukrainian families.

113 Ukranian people are currently being supported by 52 hosts but, with a lack of affordable housing in the county, the council wants to avoid putting more pressure  on the stock that is available to local people.

This is why the Homes for Ukraine scheme has been extended, and it is hoped that more people will offer to host.

Hosts are entitled to a £500 tax-free monthly payment when they take in a refugee but the council stresses that it is hoping for some larger places of two bedrooms or more, so that families can be reunited. Near towns or where there is access to regular transport options is also preferred
