Local Authorities have a responsibility to provide wrap around care and support for beneficiaries arriving from the Ukraine. To assist in the support and integration LAs are being given £10500 per annum to ensure that this care is provided and this will go towards associated costs of schools and primary care needs. Separate to this is an offer of £350 per household to assist in the interim period whilst beneficiaries find work and housing to facilitate their new lives in the UK.

There is no limit on the number of Ukrainian people who the UK will accept under its current schemes. The Home Office is keeping its humanitarian response under regular review.
