A short video about befriending at The Welcoming
The Welcoming supports migrants and refugees to build new lives in Edinburgh. They provide a wide range of classes and activities, all available on a free of charge, drop in basis. The timetable is fantastic.
The Welcoming also creates opportunities for locals and newcomers to come together, so that everyone can share experiences, celebrate diversity and learn together.
The above film highlights the roles of befrienders and the shows the difference it can make in the Edinburgh community to those that have resettled here.
You can find The Welcoming on twitter at @WelcomingEdi and their Facebook page. If you are new to the city, you can contact them and become involved as a participant or if you’d like to volunteer in some capacity.
