Eastbourne Borough Council has compiled a dedicated web page with a wealth of information about local and national ways to support Ukrainians fleeing the Russian invasion.
With many residents contacting the council with offers of help for people arriving from Ukraine or asking how to make donations, the authority moved quickly to bring together all the relevant initiatives here: www.lewes-eastbourne.gov.uk/ukraine
The page is updated frequently to provide the latest information as more help schemes and local efforts are set up and government guidance is published.
Councillor David Tutt, Leader of the Council, said: "It is a truly horrific time for the people of Ukraine as they flee their homes because of the war and in Eastbourne, many of us are doing all we can to help those seeking refuge here.
"The council is working with other local and government agencies to drive ahead with the Homes for Ukraine scheme which allows residents to register to host those escaping the war-torn country.
"I would advise anyone wishing to learn more about this scheme or the many other ways to help Ukrainians, to visit our dedicated web page which is a useful resource, packed with links and information."
As well as giving people details about the Homes for Ukraine scheme, the web page also has links to national charities that are accepting donations such as The Red Cross, UNICEF and the Disasters Emergency Committee.
It also has information about an array of local initiatives that offer support to Ukrainian refugees or are collecting donations. Among those involved are Rainbow Wishes, The Sanctuary Cafe, Wayfinder Women, TechResort, Community Wise, Sussex Aid for Refugees, All Saints Church and Hailsham Roadways.
If you are running a scheme, service, or collection point to help Ukrainians and would like this promoted on the council webpage, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
