A group of local residents is organising another meet up for Ukrainian refugees and their sponsors.

They had previously volunteered at events organised by Hammersmith and Fulham Council last year but the sessions stopped as there were fewer Ukrainians arriving.

However, it was felt that there was still a need for an informal meeting space and The Quakers in Hammersmith have allowed their buildings to be used for the events.

Since being given the go ahead from the Quakers, there have been three open house, drop-in events to welcome Ukrainians in West London at the Quaker meeting House in Bradmore Road, W6. They happen once a month on the first Friday of the month and started in November 2022. Last time out 27 Ukrainians attended including four children. Many had had been at previous sessions and found them useful.

Representatives of the council’s Refugee Team will be there and will help with questions on subjects like accommodation and universal credit.

The next Open House event is on Friday 3 February at 3pm.
