Ukraine: support and employment

Care employers are joining forces to provide employment opportunities and care support for refugees arriving from Ukraine.

The National Care Forum (NCF) and Care Provider Alliance have assembled a range of partners across the public, not-for-profit and private sectors who are also looking at how they can help through the Homes for Ukrainians scheme.

“Like many people affected by the plight of the people of Ukraine, care employers are pulling together to take action to help,” said Vic Rayner, CEO of NCF, which represents not-for-profit providers.

“We are pulling together opportunities for care and support employers to share details of available job vacancies, which we hope will be tied into the broader communications of displaced people,” Rayner added.

“There are many other ways for people to offer support, including support to Ukrainians needing care and support, assistance with vetting and matching, and those who have a housing solution.”

NCF said that the new partnership included expertise across national and local government, housing, recruitment specialists, legal and immigration experts, and regulators.
