Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, thousands of people have fled their homes in search of a new life, and many of these people have ended up in the UK.
British citizens and Ukrainians already settled here can now bring a wider group of family members with them, while the Homes for Ukraine scheme means more people can move here.
Here at UK Ukrainians we hope to provide advice to help people through this transition, but sometimes the best advice can be found from members of the community.
So which parts of the UK have the highest proportion of Ukrainians?
Earlier this year, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) published data showing the local authorities with the largest Ukrainian populations.
The top 20 were in London, with the largest populations in the boroughs of Newham, Ealing, Hounslow and Waltham Forest.
The full list of the top 20 is as follows:
- Newham – 1,340 Ukrainian-born population, as of March 2021
- Ealing – 1140
- Hounslow – 1,120
- Waltham Forest – 1070
- Greenwich – 940
- Barnett – 850
- Redbridge – 820
- Tower Hamlets – 780
- Westminster – 690
- Merton – 660
- Wandsworth – 610
- Bromley – 560
- Brent – 540
- Barking and Dagenham – 530
- Lewisham – 530
- Haringey – 500
- Southwark – 500
- Hillingdon – 470
- Havering – 450
- Hammersmith and Fulham – 430
The local authorities with the largest populations outside London were Manchester (about 420 Ukrainian residents), Birmingham (320), Bristol (300) and Leeds (300).
This data does not reflect changes since the Russian invasion, but there is no data on what the landscape looks like now.
