Be part of a Welcoming Edinburgh

Help us to provide a place of welcome, safety and opportunity.


What our participants say

The Welcoming is a kind place full of interesting people. Wonderful teachers! You can learn without being judged.

When I arrived in Scotland I didn't speak English, just 'hello', 'yes', 'no'! Now I have 2 jobs and I'm a volunteer in a charity shop! I'm more confident!

Apart from English classes, you do something more important and of value for people, something that gives joy. You help create new lives. Thank you for your work and for building new dreams, new opportunities and new beginnings.

In the Spotlight

...we're focusing on our weekly Welcoming Lunch this month! Volunteer lunch host, Barbara, has written a short blog about her role and what she loves about it. We also have a call to action for new volunteers to help us keep this lovely activity running...can you help us out?
