Ukraine crisis–How to help

Thank you to everyone who has been collecting and donating to help the people of Ukraine and everyone affected by the conflict.

Sadly, it looks as though aid and support will be needed for some time.

North Somerset Council are working with Voluntary Action North Somerset (VANS) to support local communities to help Ukraine and to help make sure the right aid is available at the right time.

There are also a number of national and international organisations which you might like to donate to. Please do check the validity of any organisation you donate to – unfortunately there will always be scammers who try to take advantage of situations, including the Ukraine crisis.

For further advice and support please visit North Somerset Council’s website.
