The government has a long and proud history of supporting refugees in their time of need, and we want to be as generous as we possibly can. Work is underway across government departments, and with charities and local authorities to ensure refugees and asylum seekers from Ukraine are properly supported so they can rebuild their lives.
On 25 February, the department posted on our Education Hub directing teachers and families who are seeking advice to resources on Educate Against Hate that could be of use in the classroom or for families and young people themselves: https://educationhub.blog.gov.uk/2022/02/25/help-for-teachers-and-families-to-talk-to-pupils-about-russias-invasion-of-ukraine-and-how-to-help-them-avoid-misinformation/?utm_source=1%20March%202022%20C19&utm_medium=Daily%20Email%20C19&utm_campaign=DfE%20C19.
Further detail on the support we provide to those we bring to the UK, will be made available in due course.
