FOI Request - Documents and Policies on Refugees and Asylum Seekers

Request 101002817353

I am requesting digital copies of documents and policies which have information about the integration of refugees and asylum seekers into Moray. This includes, but is not limited to, the Syrian Vulnerable People Resettlement Scheme and the UK Resettlement Scheme. 

Response 28-07-2021

The Council holds a large volume of records that fall within the scope of your request, many of which contain personal information that is exempt under section 38(1)(b) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. As preparing these documents for disclosure would be excessive cost for the Council, we are therefore unable to comply with your request in accordance with section 12 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Some information is already published on our website and is therefore exempt under section 25 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. Please find links to the most relevant of these below, however a search of our website and committee minutes and reports may bring up more information that is of interest.
