The Scottish Family Reunion Service (SFRS) is a joint collaboration between JustRight Scotland and the British Red Cross Society working together to provide an enhanced casework service for refugees who wish to bring their family members to Scotland.
We deal with cases of family reunion where more time and increased access to a specialist service is required or where there may be a specific urgency to the request.
The Scottish Family Reunion Service receives funding from Unbound Philanthropy and support from the British Red Cross.
