Archibald welcomes progress in development of Refugee Integration Strategy
Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has welcomed news that progress is being made in the development of the Refugee Integration Strategy.
The East Derry MLA said, “My party colleague Colm Gildernew MLA and I met with officials from the Executive Office for an update on the Refugee Integration Strategy, who confirmed work is ongoing on a draft strategy.
"This work is being informed by the research report ‘Asylum seekers and refugees experiences of life' conducted by Queen’s University which was published in December 2017.
"This strategy will be important in ensuring joined-up services are available to refugees who come here, to allow them a smooth transition into our society.
"We will continue to engage with stakeholders and the Executive Office throughout the development of the strategy."
