Live blog will cover Gedling family’s efforts to bring Ukrainian refugees to England

More articles

A new live blog has been set up to cover a Gedling family’s efforts to take in Ukrainians who have fled war in their home country.

It will follow their attempts to use the UK government’s humanitarian sponsorship scheme to provide Ukrainian refugees with sanctuary in Britain.

The blog has been set up by Nottingham Trent Student Union’s Platform Magazine.

The family of four from Gedling plan to remain anonymous to protect the privacy of any refugees they may take in as part of this process.

The family has space to accommodate a parent and their children or up to two adults.

They are willing to pay travel costs from anywhere in Europe and any visa applications fees as well as support their guests financially for as long as they need.

The earliest posts in the live feed below will detail the key developments between March 1, when the humanitarian sponsorship scheme was announced, and March 9, when this article was made live.

From March 9 onwards it will be updated whenever there is a new detail to cover as part of this story.

Platform hopes the last post will be about refugees arriving safely at the family’s home… whenever that might be.

The live blog can be read below…

iFrame About to go out but back about 9pm in case you need anything else.
