We work with hosts to support them in the process. We also want Ukrainian guests be clear about their housing options.

This guidance explains what options and support are available to hosts and guests.

It is best for hosts and guests to discuss expectations early on, within the first 4 months of arrival. Hosts should make it clear what they can offer and for how long. Guests should discuss their intentions for the future, and how to plan for that.

Hosts have agreed to house their guests for at least 6 months and longer if they can. Please give us 2 months notice if your situation changes.  You can do that by emailing: ukraine@eastsussex.gov.uk.

The options for hosts and guests after six months are:

  • Continuing sponsorship

  • Finding a new host

  • Finding private rental housing

  • Contacting your local council for housing advice
