There are many ways you can help to support people in Ukraine and leaving Ukraine. The most ideal way to help is with financial donations, rather than clothing, so this can support in various ways.
Donate to the British Red Cross, the leading charity for overseas outreach and support. Your donation will go towards food and water, clothing, medicine and first aid, hygiene products and shelter.

Also look out for initiatives from local Fitzrovia businesses who are donating towards the cause, when you purchase from them or you can donate £1, £2, or £5 after a meal. #CookforUkraine has just been set up through Just Giving by London chefs, and more restaurants are signing up each day with a few in Fitzrovia:
- Carousel – Charlotte Street
- Where the Pancakes Are – Charlotte Street
- Circolo Popolare – Rathbone Place
Ukrainian bar, Pinch, on Tottenham Street, which serves a “White Ukrainian” cocktail, is giving 15% of its total profits to the Ukraine’s armed forces.
