Sefton Ukraine Welcome Appeal

Supporting Ukrainian individuals and families arriving in the borough of Sefton.

Sefton CVS and Sefton 4 Good, in partnership with Sefton Council and local VCF sector organisations are launching the Sefton Ukraine Welcome Appeal to raise funds to support Ukrainian individuals and families arriving in the borough of Sefton through the ‘Homes for Ukraine’ initiative.

The Sefton Ukraine Welcome Appeal is all about providing assistance to Ukrainian individuals and families as they arrive in the local community working alongside local supporters and frontline organisations.

The fund will help to provide a community response, such as settlement grants for individuals and families; providing social, cultural and community networks and activities, language support, travel cards, clothing, IT and equipment and other needs as they are identified.
