Ukrainian homelessness likely to rise

By Ellie Ames | 23 February 2024

The risk of homelessness among Ukrainians in the UK is likely to increase as arrangements with sponsors end or break down, MPs have warned.

In a report, the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) raised concerns that the Government does not have full oversight of homelessness within the Homes for Ukraine scheme.

MPs said the Government must secure an adequate supply of sponsors for the future of the programme.

PAC chair Dame Meg Hillier said: ‘More than 140,000 people have now come to stay in the UK as part of Homes for Ukraine as of January 2024 and given the circumstances of their arrival it is important that the Government provide as much clarity around their stay here as possible.’
