This project helps people from Ukraine who have come to the City of Toruń because of the war to legalise their stay and obtain the right to work in Poland. The project responds to the problems raised by the Ombudsman in his comments on the draft amendment of the Law of 12 March 2022 on assistance to citizens of Ukraine in connection with the armed conflict on the territory of that country and some other laws. We are also responding to the challenges we face on a daily basis when working with people from Ukraine from March 2022. The legal changes may be disadvantageous for those people from Ukraine who arrived in Poland after 24 February 2022 and plan to stay here longer and work in Poland. That is why we want to help these people adapt to the conditions on the Polish labour market. As part of the project, we are launching a free consultation point for people from Ukraine and offering them assistance in legalising their employment and stay in Poland. Assistance includes the nostrification of documents and the provision of a safe place of residence (tenancy with a social guarantee) in the months before the expiry of the legality of residence and work, i.e. before 24 August 2023. Support is provided by a specialist in legal residence and labour law.
