Aims

To develop an informal network of voluntary organisations, migrant community groups and statutory bodies to work at a national level focusing on issues around migration that are specific to Scotland.

The network will focus on vulnerable workers and seek to encompass all new migrants and migrant issues including: economic migrants (EU, A8, A2), asylum seekers/refugees, undocumented/irregular migrants, etc.

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.
