Sefton Ukraine Welcome Appeal
Sefton CVS and Sefton 4 Good, in partnership with Sefton Council and local VCF sector organisations are launching the Sefton Ukraine Welcome Appeal to raise funds to support Ukrainian individuals and families arriving in the borough of Sefton through the ‘Homes for Ukraine’ initiative.
The Sefton Ukraine Welcome Appeal is all about providing assistance to Ukrainian individuals and families as they arrive in the local community working alongside local supporters and frontline organisations.
The fund will help to provide a community response, such as settlement grants for individuals and families; providing social, cultural and community networks and activities, language support, travel cards, clothing, IT and equipment and other needs as they are identified.
Angela White, Chief Executive of Sefton CVS commented: “We are witnessing the devastating and heartbreaking scenes from Ukraine which has led to millions being forced to flee their homes, families and livelihoods.
“Ukrainians will be arriving in Sefton very shortly to stay with hosts as part of the Homes for Ukraine Scheme.
“Our local community is so very generous in their support of others. Residents, schools and businesses can help by donating to this Sefton Ukraine Welcome Appeal. This will aim to provide essential assistance and support to Ukrainian arrivals as they are welcomed in our borough.”
