It follows Britain’s outcry to Europe’s worst refugee crisis since World War Two.

The first Ukrainians to benefit from the new policy are expected to arrive as soon as next week.

Minister Michael Gove, who said he was looking at room availability, said: “We want to make sure that every bed is available. . . can be made available.

“We know that there are a large number of people in this country – philanthropic and able to provide homes – and businesses and charities as well.”

He said “tens of thousands” of refugees were expected to be helped and there was no limit.

Volunteers can apply online today. They must commit to providing six months of free room rental.

Upon arrival in the UK, refugees can work and have access to all benefits.
