Welcoming Digital Skills (360G-SCVO-a11b000000EtaT3AAJ)

‘Welcoming Digital Skills’ will introduce two new activities to the Welcoming’s programme of support for migrants and refugees in Edinburgh: a weekly digital skills drop-in surgery, open to all, as part of their ‘Skills for Living and Working’ programme and a 16-week digital skills course for Arabic-speaking refugees, to run x3 per year, with separate groups for men and women. The project will be open to all migrants and refugees across the City of Edinburgh. Introducing the ‘Welcoming Digital Skills’ project would help the organisation embed digital learning into their regular programme and build their capacity to support people with this important aspect of everyday life. Opening up this new area of work will also enable them to draw in new volunteers from their waiting list and offer new volunteering opportunities to service users. The project will identify and train champions within specific migrant and refugee communities who can go on to support other community members as digital mentors.
