Latest government advice for moving to the UK

Before you Start

We are required by the government to carry out a series of checks on sponsors, and associated members of their households, and to prioritise the safety of guests arriving from Ukraine. We recognise that there is an urgent requirement to support people in Ukraine, but the Homes for Ukraine scheme does not replace and cannot conflict with our overarching statutory duties relating to safeguarding and keeping people safe.

There are several checks that Worcestershire County Council and your relevant district Council are required to carry out, on all adult members (over 16 years) of the household, which could disqualify you from the Homes for Ukraine scheme. These include:

  • the criminal records of all adults in the sponsor’s household
  • property and safety inspection
