Scotland is open and welcoming displaced people from Ukraine.

We are providing financial aid and have provided medical supplies to Ukraine.

People arriving in Scotland are receiving the safety and support they need, and are settling in our towns and cities.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: "Scotland has strong links with Ukraine – Edinburgh is twinned with Kyiv and many Ukrainians have chosen our country as their home – and we will continue to provide practical help as it faces Russia’s unprovoked and illegal aggression."

How you can help

Offer accommodation

Ukraine: guidance for hosts explains the responsibilities and process of becoming a host.

  • Through Homes for Ukraine you can offer a spare room in your home. You can register to accommodate people from Ukraine on the Homes for Ukraine website. Your information will be shared with us and we will contact you to explain how matching works under Scotland’s super sponsor scheme
  • If you are already in contact with someone from Ukraine and have agreed to host them, they can apply for a visa through the UK Government’s Ukraine Sponsors Scheme, naming you as their sponsor
  • If you have family in Ukraine, they can come to Scotland on the Ukraine Family Scheme visa

Support for people from Ukraine

We have tried to make the process as easy as possible for people from Ukraine to come to Scotland.

This includes visa schemes, healthcare, trauma support, housing, employment and education for displaced people from Ukraine who choose to come to Scotland.
