Welcome handbooks

We have produced a welcome handbook for Ukrainian refugees coming to the Folkestone and Hythe district. This resource pack will help our guests settle in as quickly and easily as possible. It contains information about the district and where to seek help and advice.

The information includes welfare and financial support, emergency food, health services (including mental health), education, other services for young people, and housing. The handbook has also been translated into Ukrainian and Russian.

Kent County Council and the government have also produced handbooks.
