KNUTSFORD HOMES FOR UKRAINE
& UKRAINE ZONE
Are a local community group from Knutsford and surrounding villages aiming to sponsor housing for a Ukrainian family fleeing from the war zone. We hope to raise enough money not only to pay for rent for a year in a furnished safe home but to provide support and friendship to the family.
Many people would like to help provide accommodation but are unable to do so, but together we can, please join us.
However, before we go any further, we need to pull together the funding - we estimate we need circa £16,000 to provide decent family accommodation for 12 months. We cover all our local area to include Mobberley, Chelford, Ollerton, Goostrey, Northwich, Plumley, Alderley Edge, Allostock, Over Peover, Morley Green, Mere

GUIDANCE FOR UKRAINIAN NATIONALS AND UK FAMILIES WISHING TO BE A SPONSOR / HOST
After successfully taking just under a ton of essential aid to Medyka in Poland and bring back some of our Ukrainian neighbours back to the UK and other parts of Europe, we know how important partnerships are. Our partnership with Mobberley Methodist Church and the local community is second to none. We now are well versed in negotiating our way through the Homes for Ukraine Scheme and have formed important relationships both with local government and international operators.
