Are you able to host a Ukrainian family?

Following a successful initial meeting in April, Peterborough Cathedral is working in partnership with Peterborough Citizens and Citizens UK to link local hosts with refugees from Ukraine, finding safe and stable places for those driven from their homes by the war.

Jurgita Bilinskiene has taken up the role of Ukraine Project Coordinator, heading up this vital work and aims to offer end-to end advice and practical help around the UK Government’s Homes for Ukraine scheme.

We have an increasing number of requests for hosts coming through as the situation in Ukraine becomes more uncertain and currently have 25 families waiting for homes in the Diocese. Are you able to help?

Jurgita brings to this new role a wealth of experience including being multilingual, having been an immigrant to this country herself and already being involved with the movement of Ukrainian refugees to Peterborough in an informal way. She is happy to have an informal chat about the opportunity or to visit your parish to talk about the project.
