To ask the Scottish Government what it is doing to ensure that local authorities are carrying out home visits for its Super Sponsorship Scheme, for the Homes for Ukraine scheme, fairly, proportionally and equally across Scotland.
Current status: Answered by Neil Gray on 4 May 2022
The Scottish Government is working closely with local authorities on this work. Guidance for all local authorities supporting displaced people from Ukraine through the Scottish Super Sponsor Scheme and who match through the Homes for Ukraine Scheme has been published: Super Sponsor Scheme and Homes for Ukraine guidance for local authorities .
It is a requirement for all hosts to agree to a home visit by a local authority before a guest is placed with that host, or as soon as a local authority is made aware a person has matched individually.
