Support for Ukraine

NK stands with Ukraine

As we keep those impacted by the situation in Ukraine in our thoughts, we have collated information on local and national opportunities to contribute much needed support to the people of Ukraine.

What is listed below is what we are aware of; if you have any further information you would like to share with us, please make contact.

For further information you can also visit the Lincolnshire County Council Ukraine Response web-page.

To contribute to an appeal dedicated to supporting those arriving in Lincolnshire, the Lincolnshire Community Foundation has launched a total giving appeal. The Community Foundation has confirmed that every penny received will go towards helping people fleeing conflict in Ukraine and who come to Lincolnshire for resettlement. While Government funding will meet basic costs this fund will help new arrivals to access transport, broadband and digital resources, access to leisure facilities, vouchers for toys, etc.
