A grant scheme launched by South Cambridgeshire District Council aims to encourage Ukrainian families to integrate into community life.
A wide range of events will be considered for grants, of up to £300 per project, to help reduce social isolation and help families feel involved in their community.
Projects could include buying books for English language classes, ingredients to fund a cookery day, venue hire to host a gathering, materials to run an art class, or travels costs for a trip to Cambridge.
Cllr Bill Handley, lead cabinet member for communities, said: "The aim is for the grants to provide a wide range of local activities to help Ukranian families feel a warm welcome while also supporting their integration into life in this country."
