Welcome pack for Ukrainian guests

A welcome pack for Ukrainians coming to Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole is now available.

The booklet aims to help Ukrainian guests settle into the area with vital advice on how to register for council services, how to access a discretionary £200 support payment, open a bank account and register for a doctor or schools.

It includes information from all the council’s partners, including Jobcentre Plus and Dorset-based community groups, and includes details of how people can report war crimes from Ukraine.

The 26-page booklet is also available in Ukrainian, Polish and Russian.

A further information booklet for sponsors is also available.
