“Connection Support provides an opportunity to learn the basics about the benefits that are available for Ukrainian families to access
These sessions are an opportunity to learn the basics about the benefits that are available for Ukrainian families to access, and a step by step guide to how to apply. There are screen shots provided so that you understand what to expect to make it as easy as possible to apply, and help you have everything to hand before starting the application process. The sessions are aimed at the host families so that you can support the Ukrainians in your home, with reference materials to take away so that you have a reminder of what was discussed and can share this with the family staying with you (depending on their level of English).
We also cover how to apply for schools, NHS services and accessing English language classes.
Our trainers are experienced in applying for benefits on behalf of others and will be available for additional sessions to discuss specific issues if they arise for your families.
They are supported by members of our refugee support team who will be able to answer specific questions with their understanding of working with refugee families arrived here under other schemes.”
