We recently had the pleasure of providing the Govan Community Project (GCP) with a number of donated laptops to support their work here in Scotland.
The GCP is a community-based organisation who work to support refugees and asylum seekers across Glasgow. From offering free advice and information workshops to food support and English (ESOL) classes, the Govan Community Project is working to build a diverse community that welcomes and supports asylum seekers and refugees as they build their new lives.
“Partnership working allows us to join with other groups in Govan and across Scotland to work towards common goals, which creates bonds between the diverse members of our community in a meaningful way.
It also helps us to share resources and knowledge effectively to achieve the best outcomes and improves the area as a whole”

Asia, an Advocacy Support Worker at GCP, had this to say about our recent laptop donation:
“Digital support is absolutely invaluable for sanctuary-seeking individuals and families. Devices like phones, tablets and laptops help people stay connected with family in their countries of origin while helping them to continue settling into their new homes. They are actual lifelines, linking people to vital information about medical and psychological services, education, employment and community activities. We are so grateful to Turing Trust for helping us to provide these lifelines to our community members.”
