Refugee Response Potton

Supporting Ukrainian Refugees

A group to support Ukrainian refugees hosted in the Parish has been set up by Potton Town Council and is constituted by council members, St Mary’s Church members and key members of the Potton Community.

The aims of the Potton Ukraine Response Group are to support both Ukrainian refugees and their hosts. We are keen to ensure that prospective hosts can find their way through the vetting process and are able to access various support groups on Facebook. We also want to ensure that our Ukrainian guests feel welcome in Potton and can access everything that they need during their stay with us.

If you want to get involved with Potton’s Ukraine Response Group, please contact Lindsay Kitchener via urgpotton@gmail.com.
