The Cathedral continues to support the people of Ukraine. A prayer station and donation box for the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) are available in the Cathedral. We are keen to support those already being hosted in our Diocese, if and when you are a host we would love to hear from you so please contact Canon Cate Edmonds.
The Citizens UK Sponsorship Scheme
The Diocese of Exeter is working with the charity Citizens UK to act as a key sponsor in Devon to co-ordinate providing homes for Ukrainian refugees and help ensure ongoing community support. Citizens UK has partnered with Ukrainian Sponsorship Pathway UK, which is working in Poland to identify Ukrainian refugees wishing to travel to the UK.
A Conversation Café has been set up to support displaced Ukrainian people coming to Devon and their host families. Partner organisations include Devon for Ukraine, Exeter Communities Alliance, Exeter City Council. The Café is in the former shop at 6 Paris Street. For now, it is a venue for related conversations, and is a very positive space. If you are passing, please do pop in you will be assured of a warm welcome. At the moment we believe it is open from 10am-4pm but further updates will appear soon.
