Homes for Ukraine: Ukrainian speakers & donations needed

Do you live locally in Stretford and speak Ukrainian, or do you know anyone who does?

Our community hub coordinator Emma has been busy recently supporting Ukrainian families and host families who are awaiting the arrival of refugees from Ukraine.

We are offering advice and support to Ukrainian refugees, including delivering welcome packs and carrying out home visits.

We have a team of volunteers who are currently being trained to support individuals and families but it would be really helpful to have the help of someone who speaks Ukrainian.

If you can speak Ukrainian and could spare some time to help families and individuals who are new to Trafford, please contact our volunteer coordinator Kaf, by email or call 0161 989 1689.
