Message from Cllr Richard Clewer, Leader of Wiltshire Council

Portrait of Cllr Richard Clewer

This is a difficult anniversary to mark as we know the last 12 months have been the hardest for Ukraine families who have left their homes and had to make new lives elsewhere. Last year we welcomed Ukraine guests knowing our residents would step up and provide the welcome they deserve. Wiltshire responded to the situation in Ukraine and so many welcomed the guests into their homes and helped them to settle into the county. Our teams, communities and partners have worked hard to try and ensure that this has been an easier transition with the right level of support for those who have needed our help.

"We are now at a point where some families are moving out of sponsor homes into their own homes and into employment and laying foundations in Wiltshire with the continued support of our teams.

"The Homes for Ukraine scheme relies on the generosity and goodwill of Wiltshire residents, and while some guests are moving on to their own homes, we are still in need of more sponsors. Becoming a host is a big commitment for those involved but makes a massive difference to the Ukrainian people coming into Wiltshire. Anyone who thinks that this is something they might be able to offer, I would encourage people to sign up as potential hosts at Homes for Ukraine scheme (opens new window).
