The Scottish Migrants Network

The Scottish Migrants Network is a network of organisations, community groups and statutory bodies working nationally to focus on issues around migration specific to Scotland.

The network will focus on vulnerable workers and seek to encompass all new migrants and migrant issues including: economic migrants (EU and others), asylum seekers/refugees and undocumented/irregular migrants.

The network will have three strands of work focus:

  • Information: through meeting, networking, a dedicated web-site - raising awareness of rights and migration issues; provide relevant up to date information/sign post towards existing information including that from Scotland, the UK Government and the EU
  • Supporting and Advocating: on improving rights related to migration in Scotland with a focus on employment and ensuring rights are implemented
  • Practice Sharing: to actively support and highlight initiatives to improve migrant workers rights and learning around migration projects and issues in Scotland
