Abstract
In early 2018, the second New Scots Refugee Integration Strategy was published with a vision for Scotland being a welcoming place here refugees and asylum seekers are able to rebuild their lives. The strategy recognised that children and young people required additional support to access the services they need and opportunities to participate in society. This report, stage 1 of a larger project, discusses a proposed befriending model that would support the integration of unaccompanied asylum-seeking young people through increased interaction with local communities.
