This time of social distancing is especially challenging for those most vulnerable in our city; refugee and asylum seekers are among them. Edinburgh City Mission wants to continue to equip the Church to love and care for our New Scot friends using virtual technology. Want to get involved? Send us an email!
Edinburgh City Mission’s calling to the most vulnerable in our city includes refugees, asylum seekers and other New Scots who are not allowed to work nor have access to benefits. We have provided food to many refugee families who, like other families in Edinburgh have experienced financial crisis.
In February 2020 we decided to expand the work that we have been doing with Refugees and Asylum Seekers by adopting the work that was being carried out by Edinburgh Churches for Sanctuary as they closed this year.
