Led by the Scottish Government, COSLA and the Scottish Refugee Council, Scotland's second New Scots refugee integration strategy is built on a foundation of collaboration, partnership and engagement.
The purpose of the New Scots strategy is to coordinate the efforts of organisations and community groups across Scotland involved in supporting refugees, asylum seekers and communities.
The New Scots strategy sets out a vision for a welcoming Scotland where refugees and asylum seekers are able to rebuild their lives from the day they arrive. Four overarching outcomes to achieve the strategy vision are supported by objectives and actions set out across seven themes. Principles of the New Scots approach, which will guide implementation, are also set out.
