Refugees from Ukraine

Wychavon District Council are working with Worcestershire County Council, and councils across Worcestershire, to welcome and support Ukrainian refugees. This has been confirmed by a joint statement of support which you can read below.

Joint statement by Worcestershire Council Leaders on the situation in Ukraine.

“The situation in Ukraine has shocked us all locally, nationally and internationally and our thoughts are with all those who have been affected.
“As Leaders of the seven councils across Worcestershire, we have unanimously pledged to support in as far as we are able, those arriving to our county from Ukraine with a One Worcestershire approach.
“We’d like to thank residents across Worcestershire for their continuing support.”

The people of Wychavon have shown amazing generosity to the people of Ukraine and as of 17 June 2022  more than 220 people have offered to host refugees either in their own homes or other accommodation.
