That this House recognises that 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the Scottish Asylum Seekers Residents Association (SASRA) in Glasgow; notes that SASRA was set up in 2009 with the aim of representing and supporting asylum seekers and acting as a link between its members and support agencies in order to strengthen integration; appreciates the relationship developed between its members, as it is run by asylum seekers for asylum seekers, which reinforces the exchange; understands that they act for asylum seekers with partners such as the Asylum Seekers Housing Project and Community InfoSource to expand groups’ services and support communities as well as foster individual’s skills; commends the association for spreading awareness and building fellowship by hosting information sharing community events with the Scottish Refugee Council; and wishes SASRA and all the staff and volunteers every success for the future.
