Asylum decisions and the handling of individual cases are for the Home Office.

Our priorities are for asylum seekers in Scotland to be treated humanely and with dignity and respect in their dealings with the asylum system, and for the impact on friends and communities left behind when families are removed to be acknowledged and ameliorated.

The Scottish Executive maintains contact with the Educational Institute of Scotland and other Scottish stakeholders.

We understand that the Home Office have recently held a number of information events with stakeholders in Glasgow (including schools) to explain more about each stage of the asylum process, which have been positively received.
