RST is a small volunteer-led charity that provides grants to asylum seekers and refugees living in Scotland. These grants either alleviate destitution, or help refugees and asylum seekers to overcome obstacles in accessing educational and employment opportunities.
RST uses the information and experience gained from providing these grants to lobby for procedural and policy changes to tackle the root causes of destitution.
We look forward to you joining us at our Making it Home events for Refugee Week.
Making it Home helps to build greater integration and understanding between local Scottish people and those who have come from abroad seeking sanctuary
The project has used poetry and short film to build bridges of shared experience, awareness and emotions between two very diverse groups of women across Scotland: women who are refugees supported by Maryhill Integration Network (Glasgow), and local women from Women Supporting Women in Pilton (Edinburgh).
These films are being launched and shown in Glasgow and Edinburgh in June.
