The Welcoming Association – Coronavirus measures

Updated October 2021

Our staff are currently working from home and the office.

We have reopened our office on a limited basis and expanded our hybrid approach to classes and activities. This means continuing to offer our services online, while creating more opportunities to connect in person.

Any 1-to-1 appointments at the office must be booked in advance with our project coordinators.

Visit our Timetable for up-to-date information about our current services.

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.
