I was pleased to see the statement issued jointly by all Lincolnshire councils about the support our county will give to Ukrainian people, which was:
“All council leaders in Lincolnshire stand with the people of Ukraine at this terrible and deeply worrying time.
We have plans in place to welcome any Ukraine refugees who seek safety in our county and are working together to ensure we can support the welfare of families and individuals suffering because of the Russian invasion.
The response by the people of Lincolnshire has been immediate and heartfelt and we are working with the Red Cross who are co-ordinating donations of goods and money that are being made.
As more people flee Ukraine our resettlement team will be ready to work with those wanting to offer housing and do all we can to help those displaced by this horrific war”
I am working with local Councils to support this work and to ensure Lincolnshire plays its part in supporting those who have been impacted by this devastating act of aggression.
If any constituents are affected by the situation in Ukraine and need support please do not hesitate to contact me.
