A new funding scheme aimed at voluntary and community groups which are tirelessly helping Ukrainian people settle into the county is due to be launched later this month.
With an estimated 1,200 Ukrainian people due to arrive in the county under the Homes for Ukraine scheme, eligible groups are due to be able to apply for funds of up to £5,000 to continue to help provide advice and support. This includes hosting special community events, providing access to translation services and language classes and promoting health and well-being.
The scheme will be funded by the Government’s Homes for Ukraine scheme and allocated on a rolling basis.
Please note this is settling in the county (outside of city boundary). It will be provided through the county's Local Community Fund.
