Ukraine crisis

We recognise that the Russian invasion of Ukraine has created a humanitarian crisis demanding both urgent and longer-term strategic responses from many nations, including the UK.

As part of the Homes for Ukraine scheme, the council has already begun visiting homes of residents who have applied to be part of this. If you need to get in touch, please email ukrainesupport@bromley.gov.uk or telephone Bromley’s Ukraine support line 020 8313 4698

If you are a resident with friends and family in Ukraine and need information or support about what is happening please contact the Ukrainian Embassy.

You can view the Government’s welcome guide for Ukrainians arriving in the UK.

Bromley’s Ukrainian Support Hub opens its doors

A Ukraine Support Hub was launched by the council at Bromley Civic Centre on 19 May 2022. 

The multi-agency centre, providing aid to Ukrainians new to the borough, was opened by the Mayor in her first official duty.

The borough’s support hub, which was piloted earlier in May, offers Ukrainians the opportunity to drop in between 9:30 and 12:30 to receive information and advice about subjects ranging from healthcare and employment to school placements and everyday issues. The hub hosts both representatives from various organisations and a wealth of material, both for the new residents of the borough and for residents hosting them.
