Angus Refugee Care

Angus Refugee Care offers support and interpretation services to New Scots integrating into local and civic life in the Angus region on the East Coast of Scotland.  They work in partnership with Angus Council as part of the Syrian Resettlement project.

They aim to offer a service which is holistic and tailored to each individual and family in their goals of health, social integration and employment.

They would like to here from organisations that might support this work, particularly in relation to employment (tasters or opportunities), cultural (Scottish or Syrian) and social opportunities for language practice and hospitality.

For more information visit their website, email or call 07446 129176.
