JRAN Forum: Ukrainian Refugee UK Summit
Tuesday 5 April, 4.30-6.30pm
A solutions-focused approach to the Government 'Homes for Ukrainians' scheme, for and by organisations delivering direct support.
Since the launch of the Government 'Homes for Ukrainians' scheme last week, there have been lots of issues raised by organisations working in the sector.
JRAN has been busy collecting evidence of what support is needed for organisations on the frontline and connecting the dots. On this basis, we're now planning to host an Urgent Crisis Forum on the 5th April to utilise your expertise and build a bigger picture of what support is needed.
We want this to be solution-focused, rather than problem-focused and the findings of Forum will be sent to Government.
*Please note this is aimed at organisations, not individuals who are planning to host.
