General Information

Powys County Council stands in solidarity with the people of Ukraine. If you are considering offering your home to Ukrainian refugees, thank you.

We want to support residents wishing to volunteer to be sponsors - from holding information evenings for interested sponsors to supporting you when your guests arrive.

If for any reason you need to end the sponsorship arrangement early, sponsors should inform us as soon as possible.
