Is the UK Government failing Ukrainian refugees?
Tuesday, 20 December
When Putin launched his invasion of Ukraine, thousands signed up to support Ukrainian refugees and put them up in their own homes. Nearly a year on, is our government still doing enough to support those fleeing the war? Stan Beneš, a trustee of Opora, a charity which helps Ukrainians to settle in the UK, joins Ros Taylor to explore what we can do to help those displaced by the conflict in Ukraine.
“Instead of government support, it became the job of charities to match people.”
“There is no one cohesive process of matching Ukrainian refugees with sponsors.”
“People were finding hosts on Facebook.”
