We offer a variety of health and wellbeing activities for asylum seekers, refugees and migrants in Edinburgh.

Our aim is to support New Scots to feel healthier, happier, and more confident.

We currently have a Gym and Swim group on Tuesdays, the Wellbeing Space on Thursdays, and Art Sessions on Sundays.
