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.
Who we are
Yvonne Baillie is the co-coordinator for the SFRS. She is a Family Reunion Project Officer for the British Red Cross and the caseworker for the SFRS. She is a qualified immigration adviser and has worked in the area of family reunion for over 3 years.
What we do
The SFRS provides the following services:-
- Enhanced casework service making applications for family reunion in the UK for refugees based in Scotland;
- BRC can provide additional practical services to support the application and travel to Scotland on a case by case basis;
- Contribution to policy and research at a local, national and international level; and
- Dissemination of rights based information through public legal education and professional training.
How to get in touch
Yvonne is moving to Belgium shortly and therefore will be leaving the Scottish Family Reunion Service. While we source a replacement caseworker, the service will be closed to referrals. This page will be updated when the service re-opens to referrals.
