Drum roll please....
We are delighted to announce that the Sewing2gether All Nations group has been chosen to be one of just eight projects across Scotland for the next year (2019 - 2020) to be supported by the Scottish Refugee Council "Sharing Lives Sharing Languages" projects as part of New Scots Integration: Rights and Communities!
Our weekly workshops will benefit from the training we will receive from the SRC, and continue us to enable refugees to build social connections with the wider community, improve cultural orientation, increase language practice and build employability pathways.
The funding will enable us to welcome and support more migrant friends and families as they build a new and better future together in Scotland!!
