Information about direct support for people arriving from Ukraine can be found here.
As the crisis in Ukraine continues to unfold, Edinburgh’s Third Sector Interface Partners (EVOC, Volunteer Edinburgh and Edinburgh Social Enterprise) continue to be involved in daily meetings to ensure we are ready to offer support on every level for the people arriving in our City. These meetings also include representatives from Scottish Government, City of Edinburgh Council, Edinburgh Health & Social Care Partnership, Edinburgh Airport, Scottish Refugee Council and other key partners.
These are the main areas of work currently ongoing. They involve multiple partners from community and voluntary sector, with many already delivering help:
- Children & Families
- Community & Social Connections
- Cultural Awareness
- Digital equipment
- Employment and Training
- Food Provision
- Host Family Support
- Informal language support
- Mental health and wellbeing
