Welcoming Friendship

‘Friends make you feel at home’

Welcoming Friendship is our befriending programme, designed to help local people and newcomers to Edinburgh make connections and build relationships with each other. The programme enables both group and 1-1 befriending and offers opportunities for a wide range of shared activities.

If you are a newcomer to Edinburgh or would like to refer someone who is please contact Caitlin by email on caitlin@thewelcoming.org or by calling 0131 346 8577.

Welcoming Friendship started in August 2016 and is funded for 3 years by the Big Lottery.
