New Scots Refugee Integration Delivery Project
The New Scots refugee integration strategy 2018-2022 is built on partnership and collaboration, led by the Scottish Government, COSLA and the Scottish Refugee Council and sets out a vision for a welcoming Scotland where refugees and people seeking asylum are able to rebuild their lives from the day they arrive.
The purpose of the New Scots strategy is to coordinate the efforts of organisations and community groups across Scotland involved in supporting refugees and people seeking asylum. The beneficiaries of the strategy are Scotland’s refugees, the communities they live in, and wider Scottish society. Projects and tools developed in line with the strategy to date have enabled refugees in Scotland to: understand their rights, responsibilities and entitlements; access well-coordinated services to allow them to pursue full and independent lives; build social connections and diverse relationships; and live in safe, welcoming and cohesive communities.
The New Scots Refugee Integration Delivery Project is a new programme supported by the European Union Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF). As part of this programme, up to £2.8 million will fund new projects to spread documented good practices and to support innovation in Scotland under the outcomes, objectives and beneficiaries of the New Scots Refugee Integration Strategy.
