Glasgow Welcome

Befriending Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Scotland

Glasgow Welcome is our befriending scheme connecting asylum seekers and refugees with new friends in the city. 

Befriending Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Scotland

Once matched up, pairs meet every two weeks for six months to explore cultural sights around Glasgow and get to know each other. We also organise bigger get-togethers for everyone taking part in Glasgow Welcome. 

Befriending is a great way to meet someone from a different culture and get to know them while exploring the city together. Glasgow Welcome gives everyone the opportunity to see parts of the city through new eyes, whether you’re visiting a place for the first time or the hundredth time.
