Our team at The Welcoming watched in horror, along with the rest of the world, as the invasion of Ukraine began in February. We stand with all those who are displaced and fleeing from the war in Ukraine, and are ready to welcome them to Edinburgh.
We call on the UK government to offer safe and legal routes to Ukrainians fleeing the conflict, as well as all others who seek sanctuary in the UK.
