Barnardo’s Ukrainian Support Helpline

What we do

In response to this, following discussion with the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain, Barnardo's have set up the Ukrainian Support Helpline to provide a holistic support service. The Helpline is available to anyone fleeing to the UK as a result of the war in Ukraine.

You can find more information about the Helpline on our helplines website -

Supporting host families

The government recently launched the Homes for Ukraine scheme. You might also hear it being called the Ukraine Sponsorship scheme. As part of the project, people across the UK can apply to host people arriving from Ukraine in their own home or a separate home.

Welcoming people into your own home can be a deeply rewarding experience. But we know that it’s also a big commitment. With that in mind, Barnardo’s, NSPCC, Save the Children, and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health have collaborated to produce a guide to provide practical advice and support to host families welcoming new arrivals from Ukraine into their households.
