Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme in Scotland: statistics

Latest data and information on the Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme in Scotland.

Welcome accommodation

Should a displaced person from Ukraine require welcome accommodation it is normally allocated via the core welcome hub in Edinburgh.  When in welcome accommodation, matching discussions will take place to secure an offer of longer-term accommodation.  Welcome accommodation ranges from hotels to passenger ships.

As reported by welcome accommodations across Scotland on 14 September, there were 3,309 rooms or cabins occupied by displaced people from Ukraine in temporary accommodation in Scotland. There were around 5,186 people occupying hotel rooms and 1,354 people on-board the passenger liners. In addition to already operational M/S Victoria in Leith, the M/S Ambassador Cruise liner in Glasgow became operational on 14 September. Please note that the number of people occupying hotel rooms is an estimate which assumes an average of two occupants per hotel room. The number of people occupying passenger ship cabins is provided directly by the contracted partner.
