Other Information & Links

Keep the pressure on the UK government to make a material difference to the situation in Ukraine.
Our local MP, Ed Timpson, should be the conduit for those views and in turn should raise concerns with central government.
His email address is at the bottom of this page HERE
Example of email to send to him HERE

The government have announced further support for Local Authorities that host Ukrainian refugees. Cheshire East's (CE) Ukrainian refugee page is HERE

The CE page is short on detail so will require further communication with the council. As well as contacting the CE email address on the page, it would also be helpful to email Sarah Pochin, our local councillor. She should be able to act on our behalf.
Her email address is at the bottom of this page   HERE
Example of email to send to her HERE

Humanitarian donations can be made to lots of organisations. If you donate to  Disasters Emergence Committee  the government will double the value up to a total of £20m.

If you want to donate directly to the Ukrainian government, their site is  HERE

To host a refugee(s) you first need to find someone who wants to come to the UK.
Many people are doing this through social media, friends or charities.
Some sites which might be helpful are :-
