FÀILTE’ (Scottish Gaelic) translates as ‘welcome’. Scotland has long welcomed refugees and aims to ensure every man, woman and child are treated fairly, with dignity and respect.
A self-initiated project, The FÀILTE box is an initial welcome to Scotland, which includes some essential information to help people connect with their new hometown. The box and its contents are instantly accessible, giving people access to vital information upon arrival in Glasgow. The individual guides, easily understood through the use of icons designed specifically for this project, can be tucked away in bag or pocket.
The ‘FÀILTE’ application is straightforward to use. It has the ability to hold more information than the physical starter pack and will be of use when people have access to wifi.
