A diverse and inclusive Scotland where everyone feels welcome and can achieve their potential.
We welcome newcomers, build community and learn together.
We do this by:
- Supporting newcomers to learn English, find jobs and access local services
- Offering opportunities for friendship, creativity, health and well-being in Edinburgh
- Connecting locals and newcomers through social and cultural exchange
- Collaborating with others to share knowledge and influence positive change
Welcoming, equality, respect, creativity and learning.
The Welcoming was founded by ALP (the Adult Learning Project) in Tollcross (Central Edinburgh) in 2000. In December 2010, The Welcoming became an independent charity (SC041952) and later on, in May 2011 a company limited by guarantee (SC398913).
