Allow unrelated children to enter UK with Ukrainian families

Petition Details

We call on the Government to urgently extend eligibility for the Homes for Ukraine scheme, to allow Ukrainian refugees to enter the UK with children of friends who were unable to leave Ukraine themselves.

Additional Information

There are reports that such families are being denied permission to enter the UK despite having full documentation from the children's parents in Ukraine.

Millions have fled the war in Ukraine. Amongst them are people entrusted as carers for children of friends who were unable to leave. These vulnerable groups are currently excluded from entering the UK.

Safeguarding these children is paramount. But this process must not be allowed to cause harmful delays in seeking refuge within the UK when there are people ready and waiting to welcome them into their homes.

We call on the government to urgently support groups such as these.
