Support for hosts of Ukranian guests

Offering a Ukranian guest a place to stay in your home is a generous commitment but it may come with some complex challenges and Castleman Healthcare would like to support you in this journey.


If you are registered with one of the GP practices in Network Poole North, Crane Valley or the Wimborne & Ferndown primary care networks, you can join a free network to help you support the Ukrainian guest that you are either hosting, or waiting to host. You will be able to meet with other hosts at a monthly session to share information about services and advice available locally.


Sessions will be facilitated by a family psychotherapeutic counsellor, Zoe Barnes who will encourage you to work through what may be complex emotions and how to deal with them. Through these group sessions you will explore emotional resilience, setting boundaries and how to identify signs of trauma in others. The aim is to offer those supporting Ukranian guests some space and advice in a relaxed setting, where they can take time to reflect and share experiences. All conversations will be confidential. 


Session will last 90 minutes and will be held monthly. Each session will have a maximum of 12 participants - BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL. We will meet either at Broadstone Methodist Church or St Mary’s Church, Ferndown, with slots available at morning, afternoon and late afternoon sessions.
