Upcoming event with Shared Futures

Wednesday 29 September, 4:30-6:00pm

Online via Zoom

The Shared Futures Partnership invites you to…

Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children: welcoming young people to Aberdeen

Shared Futures will be joined by speakers who support asylum seekers and refugees across Scotland, from organisations including COSLA, the Scottish Refugee Council and Aberdeen City Council. We will also be sharing the stories of young people themselves.

The purpose of the event is to:

  • Raise awareness of the situation of young asylum seekers and the National Transfer Scheme
  • Share experiences of supporting resettlement of young people in Aberdeen and other parts of Scotland
  • Identify some practical steps, support, and interventions that local community groups could get involved in to promote welcome and sanctuary for young people arriving in Aberdeen as asylum seekers

Although we are an Aberdeen-focused group, we believe learning from this event will be relevant Scotland-wide, and all are welcome to join.
