The war in Ukraine has created the biggest European refugee crisis since World War Two. By May 2023, over 175,000 displaced Ukrainians have arrived in the UK.

• The UK government quickly introduced emergency social security and housing provisions for Ukrainians which go beyond the scope of support for many other groups arriving in the UK and is more generous than the standard asylum system.

• This includes two bespoke housing schemes, the Ukraine Family Scheme and Ukrainian Sponsorship Scheme (Homes for Ukraine), three years’ leave to remain and the right to claim welfare benefits, work and study.

• However, there are emerging problems with the current social welfare provisions.
