What Lewes for Ukraine has been working on so far

Outcomes of the first meetings on March 22nd and 23rd.

It became clear that:

    • Sponsors will need supporting too, before and during their guests’ stay
    • Committees that have clear purposes need to be set up
    • Most people are not in position to sponsor but are very willing to contribute in any way that is needed
    • Refugees will probably need a lot of support from services such as the NHS and local government.
