Supporting activities with families from the Ukraine

Local communities and organisations are supporting activities with families. District Councils across Devon are appointing a lead organisation for their area who will co-ordinate activity including signposting to registration for GPs, schools and Universal Credit as well as hosting an initial ‘Welcome’ visit to the host’s property. Public health teams are also planning an initial health assessment for all families with children under 8; and to make contact with all under 18.

More information will be available here shortly: Essential information for Ukraine guests – Supporting Ukraine (devon.gov.uk).

We would encourage schools, early years and childcare providers to engage with the local community groups so they are aware of any community support that may be available for children and their family and in some areas for the setting itself.
