Bishop’s Lent Appeal 2022

The Welcoming supports refugees, asylum seekers and migrants to feel at home in Edinburgh. We support New Scots to learn English, secure employment and access local services, offering opportunities for friendship, health and wellbeing, and sustainable living. We also connect locals and New Scots through social and cultural exchanges, and a thriving volunteering programme.

Our vision is of a diverse and inclusive Scotland, where everyone feels welcome and can achieve their potential. We have a twenty-year legacy of supporting new arrivals in Scotland. Our free English classes, friendship groups, one-to-one befriending service, and employability support are vital for many New Scots who face the challenge of building lives in a new country.  We are asking for your donation so that we can continue providing our support to New Scots in Edinburgh. You can help make your Edinburgh a more welcoming place for refugees and migrants.

If you would like to make a donation, it would be much appreciated. Please contact the Church Administrator email: stcuthbertscolinton@gmail for further details.

Thank you.
