Teddington Parish is offering a place to pray for Ukrainians and publicising ways to show practical support to those in need as a result of the conflict.

A prayer candle has been lit at St Mary with St Alban's Church, providing a place to offer prayers. In particular, Revd Sergiy Diduk in nearby Hanworth asks people to pray for him and his Ukrainian congregation.

Contact Refugees Welcome in Richmond if you are looking to host a Ukrainian family locally, they offer all sorts of support, including both hosts/befrienders (English) Whatsapp groups, as well as groups for Ukrainian guests (Ukrainian). Hirsh Cashdan is happy for you to get in touch with him directly: hirshcashdan@gmail.com and there is plenty more useful information on their website about what to do on arrival, council contacts, etc: https://refugeeswelcomeinrichmond.org/2022/04/07/ukraine-update-from-the-council/
