Over 80 residents across Eastleigh Borough have already opened their homes to host nearly 200 Ukrainians fleeing the devastating war in their country As some of the initial six months hosting arrangements come to an end, Mayor of Eastleigh Cllr Adam Manning is supporting an appeal for more hosts across the Borough to help Ukrainian refugees in need.

Mayor of Eastleigh Cllr Adam Manning said, “If you can offer some accommodation to a Ukrainian family in need, please get in contact with the Ukraine support team at the Council by emailing email@example.com.”
