The Welcoming Association – Coronavirus measures
Updated December 2020
Our staff are currently working from home.
We will continue our online services and 1-to-1 videocalls as standard practice for now. We put the safety of all first and will not be resuming group face-to-face services yet.
Any essential 1-to-1 appointments at the office must be booked in advance with our project coordinators. We are not currently taking drop-in visits.
Visit our Timetable for up-to-date information about our current services.
Covid-19 emergency fund
The Covid-19 emergency fund was granted to The Welcoming Association by the Scottish Government. Please note the fund is now closed.
Useful information related to Covid-19
We have compiled links to resources related to mental health, translations of Covid-19 guidance, and information about asylum system changes and updates due to the pandemic.
