• Description

A new report by More in Common finds that one year on from its launch the Homes for Ukraine scheme has been a broad success that should be celebrated and learned from. Drawing on public opinion research and a survey of over 1200 Homes for Ukraine hosts, More in Common finds: 

  • Support for the UK taking in refugees from Ukraine is strong and consistently so.
  • The hosts' experience of the scheme has been overwhelmingly positive.
  • Hosts and guests matched in a variety of ways.
  • The community of hosts come from across British society.
  • Most hosts are willing to continue hosting their guests, and would be willing to host new Ukrainian guests, either immediately or after a break.
  • Hosts are open about the challenges they face and those their guests face as they settle in the UK.
  • The key challenge hosts identified was the lack of support helping their guests to find appropriate alternative accommodation.
  • Support from the government and local authorities has been patchy.
  • There's an opportunity to build on the success of the Homes for Ukraine model across other welcoming efforts.
