Ruddington has a great community spirit and no doubt will come together to support refugees and hosts. Welcoming Ukrainian refugees into our community will be easier with more support, sharing and networking.
The Ruddington Ukrainian Guest Support Group Facebook group has been set up to offer help to whoever needs it by sharing information, gifting items, arranging meet-ups and offering kindness during a challenging time.
Finding and sponsoring a family is fairly complex and the group can help you navigate through the process if you’re considering this. (See separate article also.)
There are other ways to help too, such as with friendship groups, language lessons and translation, or employment opportunities. Together, we can provide a safe and welcoming place for refugee families to recover from their ordeal while planning their future.
