IF YOU HAVE EVER BEEN WELCOMED BY THE WELCOMING AND/OR YOU DON’T WANT TO SEE IT GOING, PLEASE TAKE ACTION AND JOINT US IN TRYING TO SAVE IT.

The Welcoming – Grant Cut

The Welcoming has not been recommended for the next batch of funding from the City of Edinburgh Council.
If our grant is cut, The Welcoming is in danger of closing.

We are having a deputation to the City Council, Chambers St on Thursday 9th February at 9.30am. Please come and support in our protest about The Welcoming grant cut!

Also please forward this note to all your contacts, and your local councillor and MSP.

If The Welcoming closes, Edinburgh will lose:

a unique, vibrant and highly cost effective project for newcomers to Scotland:
– training and preparation for migrants, refugees and minority indigenous groups for life in Edinburgh
– provision of a wide range of classes in English, employability, wellbeing and Scottish culture
– 650 classes a year, 6 days a week and over 60 volunteers
– a prime focus for integration, wellbeing and cultural interchange

PLEASE HELP US SAVE THE WELCOMING!!
