QuoteWiltshire Council is holding a public webinar to provide an update on Ukraine refugees coming to settle in Wiltshire.

The online event will be at 6:30pm on Monday 16 May and will be an opportunity for people to find out more information and ask questions on the support available in the county.

There will be updates on the council work to support refugees including accommodation checks and payments for sponsors through the Homes for Ukraine scheme and help with school places. There will also be discussion of community support and how people can be involved and time for questions and answers.

I suspect that this event will be most effective for fluent English speakers - i.e. mostly for hosts and UK support service teams, but I rather suspect that Ukrainian guests (and others who already live locally from Ukraine) will be 110% welcome.

Noting this is a "webinar" - in other words they talk at us, rather than an interactive session.
