The UK government has announced a fund of £150 million to assist Ukrainians in purchasing their own homes and to maintain sponsorship relationships.
More than 124,000 individuals have entered the UK since Russia invaded Ukraine in February of last year thanks to the Homes for Ukraine program.
Councils will use the additional funds to assist Ukrainian families in finding private rental housing and employment.
Given that many visitors are currently in their second year in the UK, it will also be used to maintain sponsoring agreements.
According to the amount of Ukrainians living in each country, England would receive about £109 million, Scotland will get £30 million, Wales will get £8 million, and Northern Ireland will get $2 million.
During the first 12 months of the guests’ stay, hosts will continue to receive a monthly thank-you payment of £350, which will increase to £500 the following year.
The Red Cross issued a warning in March that many Ukrainians were residing in “inappropriate” housing.
UK housing minister Felicity Buchan said: “The UK has an honourable tradition of offering shelter to those fleeing the horrors of war.
“Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of hosts in this country, over 124,000 Ukrainians have now found safety in the UK.
“Sadly, the fighting in Ukraine shows no sign of ending soon, so we are appealing for more people to become hosts while providing councils with this additional funding to support guests into long-term housing.”
Through the super-sponsor program of the Scottish Government or an individual sponsor, more than 24,000 displaced Ukrainians have come in Scotland.
While they wait to find a permanent home, thousands continue to live in temporary housing.
Scotland Office minister John Lamont said: “The UK has a long, proud history of helping those fleeing danger or persecution and we will continue to help the Ukrainians whose lives were thrown into turmoil when Russia illegally invaded their country.
“Today’s announcement of a further £30 million for Scotland to help rehome people from Ukraine brings a welcome boost to the great effort already made.
“I want to thank everyone who has helped support Ukraine for more than a year now, including all those who have helped Ukrainian refugees make new lives in Scotland.”
The Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain’s Petro Rewko said his group appreciates the financial commitment in these “challenging economic times.”
He added: “Ukrainians everywhere are grateful to the Government and the British people for opening their homes and hearts to Ukrainians fleeing their homes as a result of Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine.”
