Supporting Ukrainians impacted by the humanitarian crisis

BMC members can register as hosts to those from the Ukrainian climbing community.

On 18 March UK Government launched its ‘Homes for Ukraine’ scheme. Individual sponsors are asked to provide homes or a spare room rent-free for as long as they are able, with a minimum stay of six months. In return, they will receive £350 per month.

Phase One of the scheme allows sponsors in the UK to nominate a named Ukrainian or a named Ukrainian family to stay with them in their home or in a separate property. Those who have a named Ukrainian they wish to sponsor should contact them directly and fill in a visa application.

SIGN UP HERE: hfu.thebmc.co.uk

For those who don’t have an existing connection, charities, faith groups and community organisations across the UK are helping to facilitate connections between individuals, for potential sponsors who do not have a named contact. The BMC has created this website to allow our members to register as potential hosts for guests from the Ukrainian national climbing federation community, whose details have been (and will continue to be) provided by the federation and uploaded onto this website. At the moment it is unclear what the demand will be but any help we can give will make a difference.

Helpful links

There are other ways the BMC and the wider climbing community can help. We compiled a number of links, many of which were shared by our friends at the Outdoor Industry Association and also UK Climbing.
