The UK is launching the “Homes for Ukraine” scheme where anyone considering opening their homes to Ukrainian refugees can register their interest online, UK Health Secretary Sajid Javid said on Monday.
Speaking in an interview on BBC Breakfast, Javid explained that the hosting scheme — due to go live Monday — is a collaboration with “a number of charities on the ground” that will hope to support as many refugees as possible, giving them the right to remain for a period of three years.
“Michael Gove (The UK Secretary of State for Levelling UP) will be making a statement in Parliament later today setting out the details and there's no cap on the number of people that we can support," Javid said.
"I'm pleased that we're doing this because as a country, we have a very proud record of offering sanctuary to people from wars and from conflicts and it's right that we respond in this way,” he added.
Javid said more details would be disclosed later but added that the refugees would be granted the right to work and English lessons would be provided.
It is not yet clear how those willing to host would connect with the refugees.
CNN reached out to the Department for Levelling Up to get further details but were told more information would be revealed later on Monday.
