Ukraine Refugee Crisis

The Parish Council are working with St Peters Church, representatives from Henfield Community Partnership, the Medical Centre, Youth Club and BN5 Magazine to consider what type of support might be needed.

We are currently aware of four families who are on their way and there are likely to be more.

Consideration is being given to reopening the Henfield Helpline and there was a good response to our request on social media for Ukrainian speakers to assist with translations.

A brand new website will shortly be launched containing lots of useful information and we are are also liaising with administrators of a Facebook group which has in excess of forty members who have registered to host families.
