Information for Ukrainian refugees

We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of the Ukrainian refugees who have arrived or are due to arrive in Islington.

We are delighted to have you as new members of our community and we hope to provide any support you may need to have a safe and fulfilling time in our borough. We would also like to thank the sponsors and families who, in sharing their homes, have shown the generosity which makes our community so special.

This section sets out key information and resources for Ukrainian refugees in Islington and around London. It also contains tips and advice for hosts and guests.

Ukranian and Russian translation

You can read this content in either Ukranian or Russian. These will be updated with recent changes soon.

Hosting arrangements

We encourage Islington residents to come forward if you can provide rent-free hosting for a minimum of six months for someone in need. It could be a spare room or any other type of accommodation.

Hosts are entitled to a monthly payment of £350, for a maximum of twelve months, while the guest is living with you. Email our team at to find out more.
