Council staff and partners provide a Welcome Club at Huddersfield Ukrainian Club. It provides support for people who have arrived from the Ukraine on a family visa and those who have arrived through the Homes for Ukraine scheme.

Drop-in sessions

Drop-in sessions are available on Tuesday.

People can have an initial discussion about how things are since arrival and see what support may be needed. Guidance may include how to:

  • access benefits - this will take a little time so it's important that they apply for this as soon as possible
  • access a bank account
  • apply for nursery, school and college places
  • register with a GP and dentist
  • learn English
  • progress towards employment when the time is right.

Please allow enough time when you visit as the drop-in sessions are often busy. You may need to wait for the service you wish to see. Alternatively you may wish to make an appointment and return at a later date.
