BRITS will be asked to open up their homes to tens of thousands of Ukrainian refugees in new plans drawn up by the Government.
Families fleeing the Russian invasion will be housed by up to 40,000 generous Brits in the “rooms for refugees” esquema – while ministers are to unveil the new “sponsored” humanitarian refugee route on Monday.
It means Ukrainians without family links can stay in the UK for 12 meses – while being able to work, claim benefits and access public services.
And civil servants will match them with offers of free housing from individuals, charities and businesses, who will be carefully vetted.
Brits opening up their homes will have to take Ukrainian refugees for at least six months and undergo criminal record checks – as many are expected to be women and children.
Ministers will set targets for the number of offers, and set to also rely on councils and housing associations to house the refugees.
Uma fonte disse ao Telégrafo: “It’s going to be tens of thousands initially. If you take a range of 10,000 para 90,000, I would expect it to be at the lower end – 20,000, 30,000, 40,000.”
