Agreement for ESCC to allocate £491,675 of Homes for Ukraine budget to support Ukrainian guests into work in East Sussex and delegation of responsibility for oversight of this programme to the Employability and Skills Team

ESCC has been granted Homes for Ukraine funding to support Ukrainians arriving in the county to integrate into UK life. Ukrainians will be able to live for three years in the UK and it is anticipated that up to 2/3 of those who have applied to live here may wish to remain beyond that period. Enabling people to access training and work will be a crucial element of enabling our guests to be able to be housed in a stable way and to live using independent means after an initial period of settling. We propose that some of the HfU funding is used for the delivery of an employment support programme to assist those arriving in East Sussex with developing relevant employment skills and with finding employment.
