Milngavie Refugee Action Group

Milngavie Refugee Action Group started life as a group of people from different churches who were seeking to respond in some way to refugee issues – but are not only for faith groups!  They are open to anyone in the community.

They are engaged in a range of activities, including:

  • raising money for Positive Action in Housing for work in Lesbos
  • supporting a local activist who has been going regularly to Calais
  • raising awareness of the need for volunteers in the Maryhill Integration Network
  • sharing news about West Dunbartonshire which has been receiving families from Syria

The group meets on the second Tuesday of the month in St Andrew’s Church Hall in Stewart Street, Milngavie.  If you would like to find out more please email Liz Macdonald – lizjmac@gmail.com

East Dunbartonshire – Syrian Resettlement

If you would like to know about how East Dunbartonshire is being involved with the resettlement of Syrians, please contact the Council.

There is currently no City of Sanctuary group in East Dunbartonshire.  If you would be interested in forming a group please let us know to see if we can help.
