Derbyshire’s leaders have shown their support for the people of Ukraine and have assured them that the county stands ready to help.

Tens of thousands of refugees are expected to seek safety across western Europe as the conflict continues and Derbyshire will continue its position of offering support to those in need.

We have previously co-ordinated the response to calls from government to house Afghan refugees, working with borough and district councils to offer support and source suitable accommodation.

Council Leader Councillor Barry Lewis said the people of Derbyshire stood with the people of Ukraine.

“The actions of Russia in invading the Ukraine are abhorrent and I have no doubt that the government will be contacting councils across the country to seek support for housing Ukrainian refugees as they escape the horrendous situation being experienced in their country.

“Derbyshire has always been a welcoming and compassionate place and I have no doubt that our citizens will offer their support in welcoming people into their communities should it be needed.”
