Ukraine support

Cottenham is welcoming at least eight households under the Homes For Ukraine scheme and Cottenham Parish Council extends a warm welcome to our guests.

If you are a refugee staying in Cottenham, of if you are hosting (or expecting to host) refugees, then please do let us know as we may be able to help with signposting help that is available to you, as well as providing other support and guidance.

If you are a refugee already in Cottenham, or you are already hosting refugees, please let us know by emailing Cllr Bailey on cllr.bailey@cottenhampc.org.uk

If you are not yet hosting but are expecting to host refugees in the near future then please let us know by emailing Cllr Myer on cllr.myer@cottenhampc.org.uk

We have produced an information sheet about Cottenham, in Ukrainian, which you can download here to send to any potential guests to help them decide whether Cottenham is the right destination for them.

For enquiries about the practicalities of hosting, such as home visits, DBS checks, how refugees can obtain the initial £350 payment, please contact duty.communities@scambs.gov.uk

There is also a lot of useful information and resources for hosts and Ukrainian refugees alike at https://refugee-support.ukrainianinstitute.org.uk/

This page will be regularly updated with further information so please check back.
