The Ukrainian flag is flying at County Hall as a gesture of our support. We have already provided humanitarian support to vulnerable people from Syria and Afghanistan through government resettlement schemes and will do this for Ukrainian nationals, working with partners to ensure County Durham is able to play its part in providing support.

The most effective way you can offer support is via monetary donations, which can be made at www.redcross.org.uk or by calling 0300 023 0820. The Red Cross are advising that they are not sending volunteers or donated goods to the Ukraine at this time and have asked us to point people to contribute through monetary donations, as this enables them to ensure the right support makes its way to those who need it.    Further information is available on the Red Cross website.

 We will be updating the DCC website with this information, and I would be grateful if you can pass this information on to any members of the public who may contact you for information.

Keep up with ongoing public consultations by going to the website. Durham.gov.uk. Have your say – it is important.
