The Homes for Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme, the Ukraine Family Scheme and the Ukraine Extension Scheme grant leave with no restriction on work rights and access to public funds. There are therefore no immigration barriers to Ukrainians under these schemes working in any sector of the economy, including hospitality and care.

The Department for Work and Pensions is best placed to work with people who are looking to find work in these sectors.
