Homes for Ukraine

Homes for people displaced by the war in Ukraine

SJOG Homes for Ukraine programme will be closing at the end of July 2024. We are extending the application deadline for sponsors to 30th June to ensure that we can fully support you through the application process.

Homes for Ukraine: SJOG and Caritas Social Action Network (CSAN) are part of the Community Sponsorship movement in the UK offering a matching, training and support service to sponsors and guests under the Homes for Ukraine Scheme.

Together we are working to enable the many generous people willing to open up their homes as sponsors and match them with people displaced by the war in Ukraine. We aim to support people on their journey and provide opportunities to integrate into our community in the UK.

If you would like to be considered as a sponsor, or be sponsored, please use the links below to register your interest. We will work as quickly as possible to contact every applicant and to start the matching process.
