Barnardo’s Scotland is providing support to children and families who arrive in Fife and across Scotland as a result of the war in Ukraine

We fully understand that families fleeing Ukraine are likely to have experienced significant trauma and have limited resources, which in combination make them highly vulnerable. Barnardo’s Scotland has established a Scotland wide Welcome service comprising of an Operational Manager, 7 Project Worker staff and a flexible bank of As and When staff to further support areas of particular need.
