Helping Ukrainian Refugees Find a Home

Discover the impact you can make by offering safe and sustainable accommodation to Ukrainian refugee families. Your property can be a beacon of security for those seeking a long-term perspective in a new country, far from their homes.

Over 100 Ukrainian families in the UK have turned to SJOG for help in securing private rented sector accommodation. This represents just a fraction of the 4,890 displaced individuals from the war in Ukraine who face homelessness as of September 2023.
