Family Keywork Service

Who is this service for?

Our Family Keywork Service offers specialised advice and support to families with young children aged 0-8 years who have recently entered the asylum process. Support is for at least six months after arrival or dispersal to Scotland.

We focus on early identification of the needs of parents and children and building families’ understanding of asylum, health, and education and other UK and Scottish systems.

What support can I get from this service?

We create a family support plan with you and review it regularly to make sure your needs are being met.

  • preparation for Home Office interviews
