A public consultation is to be launched in Northern Ireland as part of a strategy to support the integration of refugees here.
The 12-week consultation will form part of a draft Refugee Integration Strategy, aimed at supporting those who come to live here as a result of fleeing war and other humanitarian disasters.
The development of the strategy forms part of the Executive’s wider Racial Equality Strategy 2015-2025.
The draft strategy is intended to “ensure support for both asylum seekers and refugees and identifies priority actions to facilitate successful integration”.
The consultation can be found on https://consultations.nidirect.gov.uk/ or on The Executive Office’s website at www.executiveoffice-ni.gov.uk/consultations/draft-refugee-integration-strategy.
