Year: 2024
Topic: International
Author: Ravi Kohli, Sharon McGregor, Kate MacKinnon

The Drawing Together project explored how 53 young refugees experience integration through rebuilding their everyday lives in Scotland, Finland and Norway. This policy briefing focuses on the findings from Scotland. It provides insights for Scottish policy makers and practitioners to better equip them in promoting the wellbeing of young refugees.

The briefing links the wellbeing of young refugees to their material, relational and subjective wellbeing needs and suggests that all wellbeing needs should be met consistently from the time that a young refugee arrives in Scotland as a child through to their early adulthood and beyond.
