To support the safety and wellbeing of displaced people from Ukraine, the below checks should take place prior to a person moving into hosted accommodation. In cases where a person has already arrived and is residing in accommodation with a host, these checks should be carried out as a matter of urgency to ensure the arrangement is safe.
Pre-arrival checks (Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme)
Prospective individual hosts under the Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme will undergo the following eligibility and suitability checks:
- Enhanced Disclosure
- social work and housing records
- property visit
If a host is a Ukraine Scheme visa holder, and are applying to sponsor a guest on the Homes for Ukraine Scheme, there may be some delays to applications as further checks may be required.
There is a problem
