Preserving our Past. Embracing our Future.
Portree & Braes Community Trust aims to stimulate and coordinate the economic, cultural and environmental regeneration of Portree and Braes in response to community-identified priorities.
The Trust’s projects are coordinated by sub-groups of Trust members and directors. These sub-groups report to the Trust committee, which acts as an umbrella organisation, able to hold land and assets on behalf of the community. Portree & Braes Community Trust is capable of accessing funding and other sources of income not available to the local authority. By working with existing community groups and authorities, Portree & Braes Community Trust hopes to facilitate regeneration projects in Portree, Braes and immediate surrounding areas which form part of electoral area of Portree & Braes. The work of the Community Trust varies from trying to secure land and buildings for community use to promoting renewable energy projects, organising community events and improving access to education and training opportunities.
Skye's Community Response to COVID 19
Skye Community Response is a service that has been created out of unprecedented need in our communities due to COVID 19. This service has been established to connect the people of Skye, Raasay and Lochalsh, who are isolating as a result of the outbreak of COVID 19, with volunteers in their area - volunteers who can help them with food deliveries, pick up prescriptions and other practical support.
As part of the service a dedicated helpline is available 5 days a week from 9am -5pm alongside a website and facebook page which will provide up to date information on useful services in the area.
Skye Community Response is a collaboration between local Trusts, such as the Portree and Braes Community Trust, Community Councils and Voluntary groups alongside partners including Highland Council, NHS Highland and SLCVO.
