    The New Scots Refugee Integration Strategy, in partnership with the Scottish Government, COSLA and Scottish Refugee Council, has been published. 

    The strategy is a framework that sets out how Scotland will support all people who need protection to rebuild their lives here. It lays out how we can provide the best support to help people make progress with the things that matter to them. This includes everything from learning English, to access to suitable housing. 

    The strategy is centred around inclusivity, welcoming, and recognising what people bring with them - their skills, experience, and culture. 

    The key principles are: 

    • Support for refugees from the first day of arrival in Scotland. This includes people still waiting to hear about their asylum application as well as those with refugee status 
    • Putting people's rights first, and making sure people know their rights and where to find advice and support 
    • An awareness of the past trauma and challenges New Scots have experienced
    • Including people with lived experience in planning and implementation 
    • Supporting local communities to welcome New Scots 
    • Collaborating across various groups - local councils, politicians, charity, and grassroots organisations, health boards, and schools

    The delivery plan for the strategy will be published in summer 2024. The plan will include key actions based on the analysis of community consultation events which more than 2,000 refugees and people seeking asylum took part in. The plan will have a detailed action plan and a timeline.
