If you want to offer a home to people fleeing Ukraine, you can become a ‘sponsor’ as part of the Homes for Ukraine scheme.
Use this service to record your interest in becoming a sponsor. You can do this as an individual or as an organisation.
You can read more about the Homes for Ukraine scheme.
If you already know someone
If you already know a Ukrainian national (or immediate family member) who you want to sponsor, you can help them apply for a visa under the Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme.
If they do not have a sponsor, they will be matched with people or organisations who have recorded their interest through this service.
Who can record their interest
Anyone in the UK with a spare room or home can use this service, as long as:
- you can offer accommodation for at least 6 months
- if you’re not a British citizen, you have leave to remain in the UK for at least 6 months

What happens next
The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) will contact you about your interest.
You can read more about being a sponsor, including responsibilities, checks, and how you can support your guests.
If you have a family member fleeing Ukraine
You do not need to record your interest as a sponsor if you have a family member fleeing Ukraine. They should apply for the Ukraine Family Scheme visa instead.
