People seeking safety in Scotland are to receive a welcome pack designed to help them feel at home in their new country.

The pack is being developed by Wheatley Group, in collaboration with Scottish Refugee Council, the Scottish Government, COSLA and Police Scotland.

It will provide refugees and asylum seekers with information and advice on their rights, choices and housing options, including tenancy agreements translated into in five languages.

There will be details of support services, including emergency food through EatWell, furniture through Home Comforts, signposting for benefits advice and fuel advice, and support to settle into a new home through My Great Start.

New Scots will also get information to help them access employment, education and volunteering, make cultural and social connections, and get involved in leisure and sport.
