The support so far from Uttlesford residents for those affected by the war in Ukraine has been been heart-warming

If you or anyone you know would like to offer a home to people fleeing Ukraine or for guests who cannot stay with their current host beyond the initial six-month period, please consider becoming a sponsor as part of the Homes for Ukraine scheme.

You can register your interest on the GOV.UK website.

If you would like any advice, guidance or are interested in speaking to people who are already part of the scheme, please get in touch with our Communities Team at

Please also share this information with friends and family who may be able to help.
