Jeremy Quin MP invited Hosts of Ukrainian Refugees living in the Horsham constituency to join him on Saturday (19th November) for a meeting.
Mr Quin took the opportunity to thank the Hosts for all they are doing in providing support to their guests.
Hosts shared success stories; many of their guests have found employment and some have “moved on” having found somewhere to live independently. Mr Quin said “It was fantastic to hear from Hosts how their Ukrainian guests had settled and in many cases are working and living in our local community.
Hosts have provided a tremendous level of support to their guests for which I know our Ukrainian friends are incredibly grateful.
Mr Quin also heard from Hosts about practical issues, particularly regarding finding accommodation locally in the private rental sector and how hosts can be best supported which he is keen to take up on behalf of the Hosts.
