Statement from the Leader of Elmbridge Borough Council, Cllr Chris Sadler - 16 March

"I would like to say a few words about the situation in Ukraine and neighbouring countries to which over 3 million Ukrainians have fled over the last few weeks, following the invasion by Russian military forces.

"We have probably all seen the horrific pictures of homes demolished by shelling and missiles launched against residential areas. And we are shocked and saddened that such warfare could be unleashed in civilised Europe in the 21st century. We wholeheartedly condemn the actions taken by the Russian leader, Vladimir Putin.

"And I will repeat that Elmbridge will step up to support the people of Ukraine, as we have helped those who have fled from Syria and Afghanistan previously. The Government here has launched its “Homes for Ukraine” initiative, which provides the opportunity for the wider Elmbridge community to demonstrate its generosity, compassion and kindness.

"The initiative allows individuals and organisations to provide suitable accommodation in Elmbridge (whether that is a spare room or a self-contained home) for a minimum of 6 months. The next step would be to register an interest in sponsoring refugees from Ukraine on the Government's website where further information on the scheme is available.

"I have been encouraged to hear that a number of Elmbridge residents have already registered their interest in welcoming refugees into their homes. I am also aware that local community groups and charities such as Elmbridge CAN, have given commitments to welcome Ukrainian refugees and provide support for them.

"Our contribution, as the Local Authority, will be to provide wrap-around support for these refugees as we have done for Afghan refugees over the last 6 months. Our Officers are already working closely with Agencies at local, regional and national levels to prepare the way for this.

"We will also be promoting the Home for Ukraine scheme to local residents, landlords and owners of empty properties in Elmbridge.

"We will undertake checks of accommodation offered here to ensure that it meets the necessary standards.

"We will also work with the relevant authorities to carry out checks on sponsors where required, and

"We will work with partner Agencies and community groups to make sure that a warm welcome is extended effectively to the refugees that will be accommodated in Elmbridge via the Homes for Ukraine scheme."
