Fife ready to welcome Afghanistan refugees

Fife Council has made a commitment to welcome Afghan families seeking refugee to the region.

Fife Council's Co-Leaders, Cllrs. David Alexander and Cllr. David Ross said: "Fife has always played a lead role in welcoming refugees from around the world, and we stand ready to play our part again.

"Prior to this unfolding crisis,  Fife had already committed to resettle 10 Afghan families. We're currently working with other council services and partners including, health, voluntary sector and Police Scotland to see if we can accommodate more families.

"We will be liaising with CoSLA and the Home Office over the next few days to firm up our plans to help Afghan refugees."
