One or two people have been asking about responding to the Ukraine crisis.In particular I have received advice from Methodist Church House about folkwho want to offer accommodation to Ukrainian refugees. This says:'Those who registered to host a refugee as individuals will receive an emailinforming them of the next steps. We are yet to see the content of thatletter but it is likely/possible that it will say – 'speak to your localchurch/faith leader if you would like help in the match process'.
It is still very vague, but if folk have registered or would like to know morebefore doing so, please talk to me and I will pass on what I have received. Isuspect that once refugees start to arrive locally there may be requests forhelp in terms of language support, clothes, toys etc.
I will keep you posted but we are having to deal with what some have called'a slow government response'! Thanks, Richard.
