All individuals are inherently equal and deserving of equal treatment, with dignity, respect, and the freedom to make personal choices.


Kelvin provides 24 hour support and accommodation to young unaccompanied asylum seekers aged 16 years and over.  The service has 16 en-suite rooms with 2 communal kitchens and 1 communal lounge space.

The service has been developed by East Dunbartonshire Council in order to meet the needs of children and young people who arrive in the UK without parents or guardians and come to East Dunbartonshire through the National Transfer Scheme.

Many of the young people who come to Kelvin will have experienced significant trauma and it is important that the Service will provide a welcoming, healthy, secure, warm, safe and supportive environment which empowers young people to know their rights and understand how to exercise them.


We aim to offer a safe and supportive environment for young unaccompanied asylum seekers aged 16-25 years, facilitating their transition into independent living while ensuring their safety and well-being. We strive to empower the people we support to make informed decisions about their futures and create a respectful community where positive choices are encouraged and supported.
