Ukrainian | 800 Ukrainian refugees are welcomed in Nottinghamshire.

More than 800 Ukrainian refugees have arrived in Nottinghamshire since the Russian invasion began six months ago, the county council says.

As part of the government's Homes for Ukraine program, an additional 642 are scheduled to come in the upcoming months.

To aid in the integration of refugees into the community, the authority has put out a variety of programs.

These include a £200 welcome payment for each immigrant and a free six-month public transportation pass for the county.

The council's cabinet member for communities, John Cottee, expressed appreciation for the contributions made by people and volunteer organizations to the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

"Special thanks to everyone who opened their doors to welcome Ukrainian visitors into their homes," he stated.

"Local communities have responded with such enthusiasm, and more hosts are stepping forward all the time.

"To ensure that the Homes for Ukraine project runs as smoothly as possible, the county council has been working closely with its partners.

We assist with benefits access, healthcare, employment, language learning, and other forms of support.

As per the most recent government statistics, just under 200 Ukrainian migrants have arrived in Nottingham.
