Passionate campaigners for refugees – providing vital advice and advocacy since 1985
In 2015 Scottish Refugee Council celebrated 30 years of working to ensure that all refugees in Scotland are treated fairly, with dignity and that their human rights are respected.
Our vision is for a Scotland in which all people seeking refugee protection are welcome.
As an independent charity, we’re here to provide essential information and advice to people seeking asylum and refugees in Scotland where we can. But that’s just part of the story: We also campaign for political change, raise awareness about issues that affect refugees; and we work closely with local communities and organisations.
Scottish Refugee Council also coordinates Refugee Festival Scotland, an annual 10 day celebration of the contribution refugees make to life in Scotland.
