Homes for Ukraine: sponsor guidance
This guidance outlines important information for sponsors including responsibilities of sponsors and how sponsors may support their guests.
Runnymede residents offering support
Residents who wish to volunteer their home to host those fleeing the war in Ukraine can do so via the government's 'Homes for Ukraine' initiative. Further information on how the scheme operates and how residents can register are available on their website.
Please update the council when your guests are due to arrive in the UK. We will then contact you with further information and arrange a safeguarding visit. Runnymede Borough Council are performing 3 safeguarding visits at one, three and five months to support host and guests.
£350 thank you payments
Once sponsors pass all the governmental mandatory checks they can receive the monthly £350 thank you payment from the government. These payments are up to 12 months from guest(s) arrival to the sponsors accommodation.
Ending Host relationships
If you wish to end your host relationship after 6 months you must give 2 months’ notice to the council so we can help with move on needs (See sponsor guidance) . These options will most likely be a rematch with a new host or moving into privately rented accommodation.
