Rother set to welcome hundreds of Ukrainian refugees

Nearly 250 refugees from war-torn Ukraine are set to arrive in Rother under the government’s Homes for Ukraine in the coming weeks.

Already more than 100 refugees have arrived in the Rother district to begin new lives.

The data has been released by East Sussex County Council, which is the lead authority co-ordinating the operation to welcome and settle Ukrainian refugees as they arrive in the county.

Almost 1,200 refugees are due to arrive in East Sussex and local councils together with partners are working together to support them and their hosts.

East Sussex County Council has published a Welcome to East Sussex guide, which is available in full Ukrainian translation.
