Scottish Local Authority Refugee Integration Case Studies

All 32 Scottish local authorities are working hard to integrate and improve the livelihoods of New Scots refugees. We have collected case studies from across Scotland of good practice in improving access to employability and language support, improving social bonds and connections and increasing wellbeing. Scottish local authorities are key delivery partners of the New Scots Refugee Integration Strategy and the case studies are mapped against the strategy's fundamental outcomes and actions, demonstrating the breadth of good work all over Scotland.

This indicators framework provides practical ways to design more effective strategies, monitor services and evaluate integration interventions.

The Home Office Indicators of Integration framework (IOI) written in collaboration with leading academics from the University of Sussex, the University of Birmingham, Ulster University, and Queen Margaret University Edinburgh seeks to inform the planning, monitoring and evaluation of integration projects. The report presents a structured approach to integration in a range of local and national contexts and an evidence-based framework for developing interventions.

This framework can be used to complement a wide variety of strategies and projects across the United Kingdom, including local and national integration strategies.

A toolkit providing access to standard survey questions and measures accompanies this report to support data collection and local, national and international comparisons.
