Sponsor and house Ukrainian refugees

£350 optional monthly payment

The government is offering an optional £350 payment to sponsors hosting one or more guests. You will be able to get this once your checks have been completed. 

These payments only cover the period the guest is in your house and you should not charge your guest rent for the time they are with you.

Payments are made monthly in arrears, for up to 12 months.

It doesn't count as your income. So it won't impact any benefits you may receive such as Housing Benefit or Universal Credit.
