Experience of working with child refugees in Scotland? Action for children would like to hear from you
More than a thousand Syrian refugees have been resettled across Scotland including a number of children, some unaccompanied.
Children in Scotland is committed to ensuring that Scotland can provide a welcoming and supportive home to child refugees. Key to this is a strong children’s sector workforce with the combination of knowledge, skills, and resources that are necessary to meet the often very complex needs of these vulnerable children.
