Britons who have opened their homes to Ukrainian refugees are facing a postcode lottery over how quickly they get their monthly £350 “thank you” payment from the UK government, according to a charity.

Some delays have reportedly caused financial problems that ended with guests having to leave.

The Homes for Ukraine scheme allows those fleeing the war with Russia to come to the UK to stay in the homes of Britons sponsoring them.
