New Scots Refugee Integration Strategy – by 15th September

The first New Scots refugee integration strategy ran from 2014 to 2017.  A final report on the progress made is available online: www.gov.scot/newscotsfinalreport.

The Scottish Government, COSLA and the Scottish Refugee Council are working to develop a new refugee integration strategy for Scotland.  They want to hear the views of a wide range of organisations, groups and individuals with an interest in refugee integration to inform the new strategy.

To do this, they are encouraging people and organisations across Scotland to hold engagement events to talk about what should be in the new strategy.  You can download a facilitation guide to help you plan an event.  They recommend that you hold your event by 7 September to give enough time to write up and submit your feedback by the engagement close of 15 September.
