The Harbour Project - a charity that supports refugee and asylum seekers in Swindon - says it has seen 37 new visitors from the Ukraine over the course of the past two weeks.

Together with Swindon Borough Council, the charity organisation have produced a guidance document entitled 'Ukraine - How can we help?'

The document aims to help hosts and families to navigate their way around the various processes they will be currently undergoing.

The Harbour Project says it wishes to say thanks to Wiltshire Digital Drive and Vodafone Connect. As a result of its links with the two organisations, the charity has been able to distribute Chromebooks and simcards to its new Ukrainian visitors.

The charity also wishes to remind Ukranian visitors and their hosts that they are welcome to come and visit their team if they need help with anything.

Pattern Church have also hosted their first Weekly Dinner for Ukrainian arrivals and host families.

The weekly dinner is available every Tuesday, from  5 - 7pm. Roughly 40 arrivals and their families attended the first event. A spokesperson for the charity said that 'there was a great atmosphere with people making new friends and swapping numbers.'
