This guidance is for all practitioners involved in the safeguarding of vulnerable children and adults arriving from Ukraine into Scotland. It outlines the approach to identifying, supporting and maximising the safety of these individuals.

The guidance does not replace national or local safeguarding, child and or adult protection guidance, but should be used by services in conjunction with the Super Sponsor Scheme and Homes for Ukraine: guidance for local authorities.

For more information on supporting adults and children, please read guidance for protecting displaced and refugee children by UNICEF and supporting child refugees and their families by CELCIS.
