A place to belong for Ukrainian Refugees

How you can help

For those who cannot host, joining Refugee Roots as a volunteer will allow us to increase the number of people we can support and make sure we have the capacity for Ukrainian and other refugees and asylum seekers arriving in Nottingham.

How we will help


We will be offering befriending support to locally hosted refugees. If you or someone you know is hosting a refugee through the government scheme we would happily assist and support them or you with additional help from our befrienders to help with needs such as:

  • benefits
  • employment
  • social activities
  • English classes
  • school 

Our volunteers can help to access a range of social and learning activities on offer each week with us at Roots. 

Weekly art sessions, English classes, women's group and much more are open to all. 


Information for hosting:

Hosting is a significant commitment and we recommend reading the City of Sanctuary "Things to consider".

Please read through the government website which has all of the most up to date information on the scheme. 

Here is also a useful document for Ukrainians engaging in the scheme.
