If you’re taking part in the Homes for Ukraine scheme as a sponsor, you can apply for an optional ‘thank you’ payment of £350 per month, for as long as the guest remains in your accommodation for up to 12 months. This payment will be tax free and should not affect your Council Tax status or entitlement to benefits.

Before you begin

You are eligible for a ‘thank you’ payment if all of the following are true:

  • a guest is living in your accommodation under the Homes for Ukraine scheme
  • you are the named ‘lead sponsor’
  • you are not charging the guest rent

You will need the address your guest(s) are staying, your bank details and a copy of your bank statement.
