In response to the offer of homes for Ukrainian refugees in the Market Harborough area, Trustees considered the support provided nationally and locally and the immediate needs of refugees living in the area.
They noted that refugees must travel to major cities to complete the process for biometric residence permits – and the cost of travel from Market Harborough. To help with this immediate need, they set aside a budget to assist those facing hardship in meeting these costs. Eligible applicants could apply for a flat rate grant of £30 per person. By November 2022 18 refugees had received a grant.
