We’re delighted to announce, in partnership with the Scottish Government, COSLA and the UNESCO Chair at the University of Glasgow, a new funding stream for groups and organisations working to help people settle into communities in Scotland.

The New Scots Refugee Integration Delivery Project will offer grants to groups and organisations to extend existing work, or to start new projects by, with and to help people seeking safety in Scotland.

Applications are invited from groups and organisations working to support the integration of people seeking sanctuary across Scotland, as long as they meet the priorities of the New Scots strategy and its themes, either by expanding existing good practice or developing new and innovative ways to help people with refugee status and those seeking protection.

The deadline for application submissions is 22 May 2021 11.59 p.m.

Information and guidance about the New Scots Refugee Integration Delivery Project here.

We encourage community groups across Scotland to apply to the fund. Our Community Development team can help provide further information and answer questions about proposed projects.
