information DESCRIPTION

The Welcoming Association brings together refugees, asylum seekers and people from Scottish and local minority ethnic communities. The aim is to welcome newcomers, learn together and improve English language and literacy skills.

The project supports new migrants to get to know the local culture through outings, music, drama, visual arts and talks. There are visits from service providers in law, housing, employment and education.

The Welcoming was founded by ALP (the Adult Learning Project) in Tollcross (Central Edinburgh) in 2000. In December 2010, The Welcoming became an independent charity (SC041952) and later on, in May 2011 a company limited by guarantee (SC398913).
