Homes for Ukraine

If you have a spare room or home and can make it available for at least six months, find out how you can become a host for Ukrainian refugees in Oxford through the Homes for Ukraine scheme.

A monthly thank you payment of £550 per month will be paid to you for the time you are sponsoring and hosting someone. This payment is optional.

Guidance for Ukrainian nationals

Find information, support and help for Ukrainian guests in the Homes for Ukraine scheme, in English, украї́нська мо́ва (Ukrainian) and русский язык (Russian) on the Oxfordshire County Council website.

The Government has also provided a guide for Ukrainians arriving in the UK, with information and advice on support and services for them.

Oxfordshire Community & Voluntary Action (OCVA) has created a webpage listing local organisations that offer support and advice to refugees in Oxfordshire.

We have created a map of useful organisations and places to be aware of in Oxford:
