OPEN OFFERS FOR ASSISTANCE

#1

We can offer accommodation in our house. We have 2 spare double rooms, with use of a separate bathroom. Kitchen and living space would be shared, although there is a possibility of a separate living space upstairs/potential third bedroom. We live in Storrington, a medium size village in West Sussex. It does not have a railway station but does have bus transport to Worthing and Horsham. I'm sorry but we would not want to have a smoker living in our house. We could provide accommodation for adults with or without children. There are schools nearby. The local community is very friendly and there is a network of support building up to receive and help look after refugees. We do not speak Ukrainian nor Russian but can speak some French. We are willing to help with transport and administration as necessary.

...

#2

Accomodation Newcastle, UK - Pleasant suburb close to city centre. double room, single room , shower and toilet. No pets and non smokers please. Prefer older children . We are doctors (retired dermatologist and academic diabetologist). Could introduce to working colleagues.

...

#3

We own a detached house with gardens in a quiet village near Dronfield, not far from Sheffield, in the middle of England, where we can offer Ukrainians 2 bedrooms with access to their own separate bathroom. We have already signed up for the UK 'Homes for Ukraine' scheme, but this requires that we help one or more NAMED Ukrainians to apply for visas to come to the UK. The block for us is that we do not know any specific individuals, and all attempts to follow various leads have not been successful in putting us in touch with anyone. If EADV can help, and there is someone out there would is motivated to face all the bureaucracy that the British government has put in the way of folks coming to UK, then we would make them very, very welcome. One other thought - I am not sure what the situation is in EU countries, but anyone coming in under this British scheme would be eligible to work here, if that would be of interest to anyone.

We are pleased to offer accommodation for up to 3 people in a private top floor with 2 bedrooms and washing facilities. Other domestic facilities would be shared with us. This offer would run within the UK visa regulations which allow a matching process whereby named Ukrainians match with us and between us we fill in the relevant UK visa application. It is envisaged as a 6 month period. As a Dermatologist I am well connected with the professional networks in the UK and opportunities to qualify to practice in this country. We live in the South west in Bristol. There is an established pathway for Dermatologists to come from abroad to work in the UK, but it requires some preliminary clearances and language qualifications. Full independent consultant level work is a further level of accreditation based on matching equivalence of training and in areas, providing supplementary training with a subsequent approval. All of these can be addressed after arrival, but it would be important to have full evidence of all your qualifications and curriculum vitae. Marion, my wife, is a general practitioner and well connected with training and accreditation of general practitioners. A range of similar approvals would be needed to work in general practice.
