Guests arriving under the Homes for Ukraine scheme are eligible for an interim payment of £200 per guest for subsistence costs.

When the Home Office notify us of your arrival, we will make contact at your host address.

If you have arrived under this scheme and have not heard from us, please contact Merton Community Hub who will refer the matter to us.

Sponsors can request the interim welfare payment on behalf of arriving guests by emailing us at refugee.support@merton.gov.uk

Ukraine Family Scheme visas

If you entered the UK on a Ukraine Family Scheme visa, you are not entitled to the £200 interim payment.

You can get help from the Polish Family Association to claim benefits and in the cases of immediate hardship be referred to Wimbledon Guild for a one-off grant: see
