You can help people from Ukraine by offering them a place to stay in your home or a property you own.
You will need to apply and provide some basic information about yourself and the accommodation you can offer.
You will receive £500 a month as a thank-you and to support you with any costs. You can still request that your guests contribute a reasonable amount to bills but must not charge rent.
The £500 thank-you payment will be tax free. It will not affect your entitlement to benefits or to a Council Tax reduction.
You may find it useful to attend a free ‘Introduction to Hosting’ session to help you make an informed decision on whether to apply to become a host. There is also a helpline, further training and workshops to share experiences with other hosts. Find out more and register for a session.
All offers are subject to safeguarding checks and property inspections, to ensure guests are provided with a safe and suitable place to stay.
