Super Sponsor Scheme and Homes for Ukraine: guidance for hosts

Guidance for hosts providing accommodation through the Super Sponsor Scheme.

Scottish Super Sponsor Scheme

The Scottish Super Sponsor scheme exists to simplify the visa process.

We have worked closely with the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) and local authorities to put in place a matching service where the needs of the arriving individuals can be assessed and they can be matched up with a longer-term housing solution that is suited to their needs.

This may be a social or private rental property or a property that has been registered by an individual on the Homes for Ukraine: record your interest.

People who have made an expression of interest in hosting will be contacted to offer them the chance to be matched through the Scottish Super Sponsor scheme. Once initially registered, prospective hosts will be contacted to provide further details on the property available.

Thank you payment

You can receive an optional ‘thank you’ payment of £350 per month from the UK Government for up to the first 12 months of hosting.

This payment is limited to one monthly payment per residential address, regardless of the number of individuals sponsored. Payments will stop when the hosting ends.

This is a thank you payment rather than a rental or any other kind of contractual payment and it will be paid in arrears. This payment will not be released until property and personal (disclosure) checks have been completed.

This payment is tax free and does not affect your entitlement to benefits or council tax status. Local authorities will make these payments.
