BCP Council Seeks Help From Landlords For Relocation Of Ukrainian Refugees

Landlords and second-home owners are being asked to consider the Ukrainian Refugee situation in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole area, and register their interest in helping with the BCP Council.

According to the United Nations (UN) more than 2 million people have now fled the Ukraine because of the Russian invasion, and will only continue to rise. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees has called it the fastest-growing refugee crisis in Europe since World War Two.
Councillor Karen Rampton, Portfolio Holder for People and Homes said the council have been working with the Home Office to shape what the region's refugee response would look like. In response, she appealed to landlords and second-home property owners to register their interest in offering a home to Ukrainian refugees with the council, so it could be prepared.

Councillor Rampton said: "Whilst we wait for further national guidance around how BCP Council might need to step in to assist the national housing effort, we are keen to register people's interest in offering self-contained housing, for it and when we might need it."

If you can offer a suitable self-contained property in the BCP area contact: resettlement@bcpcouncil.gov.uk
