Support for new refugees

Overview

This service helps people with all aspects of building a new life in Scotland. We can help with housing, education, health, learning English and building social connections.

Who is this service for?

Our integration service is for people who have recently received refugee status, humanitarian protection or discretionary leave to remain. 

How we help

The service provides advice and advocacy to help people through this crucial time, including practical support to resolve immediate housing and money issues.

But that’s not all we do. Our advisers work one-to-one with individuals and families to identify people’s unique needs and hopes and to help people develop a personal plan for the future.

This service helps with:

  • accessing benefit payments and other entitlements
  • housing issues
  • getting a National Insurance Number
  • finding out about education, training, learning English and skills to help you find work
  • planning for the future, working towards your goals and aspirations

“When we came to Scotland we were very lonely… our family wasn’t here. My goal was to study but I couldn’t study at that time. In a new country, you have to start everything from zero.”
