More help is available to help refugees from the Ukraine as they arrive in West Norfolk.
The borough council is giving £10,000 to fund a temporary part-time support worker for migrant charities Access and the Hanseatic Union, and has also set up an emergency grant scheme for those most at risk of financial hardship.
Stuart Dark MBE, leader of the borough council, said: “Our priority is to provide a welcome package for refugees that is compassionate and comprehensive.
“The best way we can do this is by working with and supporting our partners, drawing on the expertise of each, to make the transition process as smooth as we can make it.”
There is a Facebook page called Open House UK – that has been built purposefully to link people offering donations and people needing donations. This is the first port of call for people whether they need practical support or want to make a donation. Other information about services and help available are on the Access migrant support Facebook page and Hansos Unija Facebook page.
