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 Hubs

Welcome Hubs are located in:

  • Edinburgh
  • Glasgow
  • Renfrewshire, and
  • Dumfries and Galloway

The councils have, in partnership with the Scottish Government, established a welcome hub at key points of entry to provide 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. 

These councils will work with COSLA, the Scottish Government 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 nearest Welcome Hub. 

The Welcome Hubs have associated accommodation to allow guests to stay prior to matching and travel to longer term accommodation that will be made available through the matching service.
