This publication summarises the latest Scotland-level data and information on people displaced by the war in Ukraine arriving through the UK ‘Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme’, which includes those sponsored by the Scottish Government (also known as the Scottish super sponsor) and individual sponsors. This report gathers together various data sources, including operational data from welcome accommodation facilities and local authorities across Scotland, and the Scottish Government. This data includes the number of displaced people from Ukraine that are in welcome accommodation, number of rooms and cabins occupied in welcome accommodation, and offers to host displaced people from Ukraine. This data will complement and be published alongside information on the numbers of applications, visas and arrivals of displaced people from Ukraine to Scotland and the other three UK nations, already regularly published by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC).
This report accompanies the experimental statistics tables on the Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme in Scotland.
This statistical release has been designated as new experimental statistics which has not been assessed by the UK Statistics Authority. Experimental statistics are official statistics that are newly developed or innovative, and are undergoing evaluation.
This report provides data on visas, arrivals, offers to host and welcome accommodation. It is not a full account of all displaced people from Ukraine. Displaced people with visas are free to enter the country and live and work where they want. Not everyone entering the UK through the Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme (including those sponsored by the Scottish Government) will need accommodation provided to them. They may make their own arrangements, including renting their own accommodation or staying with friends and family. Some arrivals may have also self-matched with a volunteer host, assisted by a charity or support network. Those arrivals may never be in contact with a welcome hub or local authority seeking accommodation. We do not collect data on this subset of displaced people from Ukraine.
This release will be published quarterly after the current publication. The date of the release will be pre-announced on the Scottish Government forthcoming publications release in due course.
We would like to recognise the extensive work undertaken by colleagues across all organisations involved in the Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme.
