Today the report of the first year of the News Scots refugee integration strategy 2018-2022 has been published. The document provides a summary of progress made during the first year of implementation. It focuses on work which has taken place and highlights where action is being informed by the lived experience of refugees, asylum seekers and communities.
The report sets out what has happened in year one of the strategy under each of the New Scots outcomes:
1. Refugees and asylum seekers live in safe, welcoming and cohesive communities and are able to build diverse relationships and connections.
2. Refugees and asylum seekers understand their rights, responsibilities and entitlements and are able to exercise them to pursue full and independent lives.
3. Refugees and asylum seekers are able to access well-coordinated services, which recognise and meet their rights and needs.
4. Policy, strategic planning and legislation, which have an impact on refugees and asylum seekers, are informed by their rights, needs and aspirations.
