This website was created by Open University staff who want to volunteer to provide homes for Ukrainian refugees.

From the start it was obvious that we can be most helpful to Ukrainian academics since we have the the knowledge, shared experiences, and contacts that can be most helpful for our Ukrainian colleagues.

By 'academics' we mean university lecturers, researchers, professors, students, administrators, support staff, and anyone similar.
