Covid-19 update

We wanted to let you know that MIN is currently operating as usual but have put additional hygiene measures and information in place for staff, volunteers and service users and will continue to follow guidance from the Scottish Government on Covid-19 closely, taking appropriate action as necessary.
NHS Inform has added some specific advice on Covid-19 for refugees and asylum seekers living in Scotland. The update is to make clear that testing and treatment for Covid 19 will be free for everyone, regardless of residency status.

Right to Vote

As our MIN Voices group have been taking part in a lot of discussion and campaigning around the right to vote recently, we thought it would be good to share some information from Promote the Migrant Vote on who can vote in the upcoming General Election 🗳 find out if you are eligible from the Can I Vote in the General Election? page, you have until midnight on Tuesday 26th November to register to vote and there is also information on how to do this on the page too 🙂 ☑️

The Scottish Refugee Integration Service are holding an information event at MIN on Tuesday 19th December for those in the asylum process who would like to know more about what happens next after gaining refugee status.
