In Scotland, the resettlement and relocation of people fleeing the crisis in Afghanistan is being managed by local authorities. Scottish Refugee Council is not directly involved in this process, but we are standing by to help where we can.
We've launched an Afghan Citizens Information Service offering support and advice to people arriving in Scotland. We're also calling for more information and transparency from the UK government on their response to the situation in Afghanistan – and the fate of Afghans seeking safety in the UK. And we're working with partner organisations across the UK to stand up for refugee rights and make sure that people seeking safety in Scotland receive a warm welcome.
