Who

Encompass helps the following key groups: those in recovery from substance misuse, those moving on from past offending behaviours, and those affected by homelessness. It is for people living in the Edinburgh area.

When

Encompass is not time limited, as we understand the complex challenges participants face and work around their changing needs.

Why

Encompass offers the opportunity for participants to gain a positive learning experience and to gain skills and qualifications that will enable them to make progress in education, further training or employment.

Where

Encompass is delivered through Access to Industry’s Community College (in partnership with Edinburgh College). This is based at 156 Cowgate in Edinburgh. The service is also delivered in outreach locations. This enables people who are not yet ready to attend the Community College to start their Encompass journey.
