Life is good in Scotland project

Welcome to the Life is Good in Scotland (LiGiS) Project, generously funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and supported by the Scottish Refugee Council.

Our mission is to empower immigrants, migrants, and refugees in their journey of integration and adaptation to Scottish society. Through innovative and practical approaches to learning English as a second language, we aim to equip participants with essential skills and knowledge for life in Scotland.

Our objectives focus on fostering social inclusion and integration among marginalised groups by enhancing English language competencies, cultural awareness, and access to public services.

The LiGiS Project offers diverse opportunities, including engaging events, interactive learning groups, skill-building workshops, and enlightening heritage visits.
Join us on this transformative path towards building a stronger, more connected community where every individual’s unique background is celebrated and valued.

Experience our English classes, diverse workshops, and enriching heritage visits as we journey together towards a brighter future in Scotland.
