We are privileged to welcome people from all over the world to their new lives in Scotland. In the last year we have worked with over 1200 people from 81 different countries. Wherever you are from, and whatever the reason you are here, we are glad to welcome you!

‘I think that it is a very important starting point to settle and start a new life. I thought that was just English classes but it is much more. It helped me finding new friends and feeling like being at home. Thank you very much!’

‘Thanks to the Welcoming, I did a course, I have a job, I have new Scottish friends.’

‘The Welcoming is such a nice place. When I feel alone at home, I come to The Welcoming and I feel that all stress is removed, I feel better.’

‘You help many people to start a new life in Edinburgh.’

‘So thanks for help me every day and to be my first friends :-)’
