We have had a number of enquiries about our role in supporting refugees from Ukraine. As yet we have not had any Ukrainians through the doors seeking support. The Homes for Ukraine scheme has been slow to mobilise (not through lack of volunteers) and it is unclear what role the third sector in Leeds will play in it. As with any refugees and asylum seekers seeking our support, the doors of Meeting Point will be open to them if and when they need us.
The drop-in will be closed on Easter Monday (18th April) and will reopen on Monday 25th April to include a social ‘cafe’ space again.
