About this toolkit

A team of researchers from the Institute for Research into Superdiversity at the University of Birmingham, directed by Professor Jenny Phillimore, created this toolkit with the aim of collating in one single platform documents, website links and resources that can be used for all stakeholders involved in the Homes for Ukraine Scheme.  This toolkit incorporates information on the scheme available in Ukrainian and also considers specific resources produced by the four nations: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, as well as websites created by the Local Authorities and charities working to match hosts and guests.

This toolkit is intended to be used as a check list of factors that hosts and guests might consider when matching, during the pre-arrival phase, the first weeks after the arrival, and for medium and longer term integration. It also includes some guidance on how to have difficult conversations for hosts and guests. We hope this tool will help all those working on the Homes for Ukraine Scheme as well as hosts and guests.

Please let us know if this tool was helpful for you and if you have any suggestions about how to improve it. Contact at: m.reyes@bham.ac.uk
