Hartwith cum Winsley Parish Council is immensely troubled by the horrific devastation and illegal invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces, and the escalating humanitarian crisis facing the Country.
This Council extends its thoughts and prayers to members of the Ukrainian community and pays tribute to the incredible generosity the people of Nidderdale have shown in their personal efforts to support the humanitarian response to this crisis.
Here just some of the ways residents can show their support for Ukraine:
Donations: The easiest and most effective way to support the humanitarian situation in Ukraine is to make a donation to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Ukraine appeal. The UK Government has also said that it will match every £ donated.
Donate safely on the DEC website https://www.dec.org.uk/
Homes for Ukraine scheme: This bespoke scheme will offer a route to those who want to come to the UK who have someone here willing to provide them with a home. It will enable individuals, charities, community groups and businesses to volunteer accommodation and provide a route to safety for Ukrainians, and their immediate family members, forced to escape their homeland. Sponsors should provide accommodation for as long as they are able, but there is a minimum expectation of 6 months.
If you are worried about family members or relatives: See advice for British nationals who are in Ukraine on Gov.uk https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/ukraine
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine have an emergency helpline number for anyone concerned about Ukrainian citizens: 07553 483628
Temporary visa concessions have been introduced for family members of British nationals who usually live in Ukraine. See UK visa support for Ukrainian nationals on Gov.uk.
