For anyone directly or indirectly affected by current events in the Ukraine, there is a range of support available and ways that you can help.

Homes for Ukraine

For more information, the Welsh government's Ukraine helpline is now live for advice, help, and support. You can call:

  • 0808 175 1508 for calls from the United Kingdom (UK) 
  • +44(0) 20 4542 5671 if phoning from outside of the UK

Advice is available in both English and Ukrainian.

School hubs

Our Ukrainian hub schools are Llanwern High School and Milton Primary School.

The hub provision allows Ukrainian children, young people, and families to come together. It hopes to reduce pupils’ feelings of isolation from other Ukrainian children and young people during this difficult time.

Other benefits of a Ukrainian Education Hub include:

  • supporting families to settle in Newport
  • providing specialist and targeted support, including language acquisition support
  • support from the Gwent Ethnic Minority Service (GEMS)
  • additional teaching and learning resources, including through the Ukrainian language
  • providing support for effective cross-phase transition between the two cluster schools

For more information, please visit our schools and learning section
