Hi Lorna,

This sounds really interesting! Best of luck with it and I will see if I can arrange to come along. Thanks for sharing!

I had noticed from previous Erasmus+ related posts that you were interested in finding out more regarding international work. Xchange Scotland and YouthLink Scotland are putting on an Erasmus+ workshop in the Melting Pot in Edinburgh on 19/9 - I posted a link on a forum post but you're most welcome to come along and have a chat with us! We promise lunch, tea, biscuits and engaging discussions!
