Super Sponsor Scheme and Homes for Ukraine: guidance for local authorities

Guidance for local authorities on the Scottish Government’s Super Sponsorship Scheme and Scotland’s responsibilities under the UK Government’s Homes for Ukraine scheme.

Welcome Hub

A Welcome Hub in Edinburgh provides a welcome, advice and initial triage of requirements. This includes physical and mental health, future housing needs, communication with family members and relevant public protection vetting assessment.

We work with COSLA and the voluntary sector to ensure immediate support is available on arrival to Scotland. Those arriving will be met at their point of entry and transported to the Welcome Hub for a triage assessment.

Guests are then provided with temporary welcome accommodation anywhere in Scotland, prior to matching and travel to longer term accommodation that will be made available through the matching service.
