What can I do to help?Ukraine Supporters Network

Groups and individuals wanting to offer support to Ukrainian refugees and Host families in Basingstoke & Deane:

Please join the Ukraine Supporters network in Basingstoke & Deane .  The aims of the network are:

  • To connect groups and individuals from across the borough who are seeking to offer support, offering opportunities to link with peers and share best practice
  • To serve as a central vehicle for cascading information between groups and providing updates from local and central governments sources as these become available
  • To serve as a mechanism for connecting local residents who come forward wishing to help with their nearest support group that has already been established – aiming to reduce duplication and enhance neighbourhood connectivity
