Through this Glasgow-based project, we will recruit, train and supervise 45 volunteers over three years.

70% of them will be migrants and 30% will be from the host community, with a majority from disadvantaged and diverse backgrounds.

The volunteers will work across key roles in our organisation in order to develop their transferable skills and strengthen the organisation’s capacity to support migrants, amplify their voices, and bring communities together.

Activities will include: organising community cohesion events; providing one-to-one support to migrants, including support with English or IT, or signposting to education or mental health services; and training migrants to develop media skills, confidence and understanding of how to engage with the public and policy makers.
