Kingston Council stands with Ukraine - How can you help?

How can I help?

If you have signed up to host a family through the Homes for Ukraine scheme, view our guidance for hosts webpage. If you are looking for other ways to support Ukrainians, you can find resources on this webpage.

Offers of community support

If you are a local organisation, individual or business looking to offer your support for Ukrainians arriving in our borough, please fill out our community support offer form. We will ensure that suitable offers of support are translated and forwarded onto Ukrainian families in Kingston.

Volunteer interpretors 

Can you speak Russian or Ukrainian? If so, you might be able to help welcome and support Ukrainian families arriving in Kingston. Find out more and apply to be a volunteer interpretor
