As part of the UK Homes for Ukraine Scheme, the first families have started to arrive and more are expected in the coming weeks.

Flintshire’s Chief Executive, Neal Cockerton, said:

“As a County of Sanctuary, we have an absolute commitment to supporting those fleeing from Ukraine.  We have put in place measures that will ensure this happens safely for everyone.  The process has been agreed with all partner organisations. 

“Safeguarding for both hosts and sponsors is at the forefront of our decision making and we are confident that we will welcome families from Ukraine into Flintshire ensuring that they feel safe and supported.”
