Ukrainian Support

Capital City Partnership (CCP) and the Department for Work and Pensions DWP are part of the Edinburgh Conflict Oversight Group that meets daily to link to the wider support efforts, led on by The City of Edinburgh Council (CEC). This is where all our intelligence on numbers and details comes from.

CEC has established a Welcome Hub at the Royal Bank of Scotland in Gogarburn that all arrivals to Edinburgh Airport will be transferred to for assessment and support. Initial hotel accommodation is provided there before refugees are moved into more sustainable accommodation.

The Job Strategy Group is working with partners to support the arrival of Ukrainian refugees. We have a weekly meeting of core partners and Joined up for Jobs providers. The group will flex and grow as the demand for services becomes clearer.
