Preparation course for hosting Ukrainian refugees

Taunton Welcomes Refugees (TWR) works with volunteers to befriend refugees in Taunton, Wellington, Bridgwater and the surrounding area and is, of course, deeply saddened by the current war in Ukraine.

Are you thinking about hosting a refugee or family who has fled Ukraine? Have you registered for the Homes for Ukraine scheme, or thinking about doing so?

TWR has experience and knowledge to support hosts who are opening their homes to Ukrainians. Do you know much about the geography of Ukraine, the main religious beliefs and festivals, language, and cultural activities of the people who are already arriving in our county?

Make sure you are fully informed and ready to accept a refugee or family by watching our two free online 2 hour sessions covering:

  • Becoming a refugee
  • Cultural awareness
  • How to support a family
  • Communications across language differences
  • Mental health and wellbeing
  • Boundaries and confidentiality

These sessions were originally presented live on the 6th and 12th April 2022. You can watch them now by clicking on the links below.
