Support for Coigach Community

Coigach Community Development Company (CCDC) has secured funding from the Scottish Government, via Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE), to support the community of Coigach during the COVID-19 crisis, from the Supporting Communities Fund.
We are therefore able to support people in the communities in various ways:
  • volunteer expenses
  • some business expenses eg shop deliveries and safe shopping  (for delivery/packaging/hygiene costs)
  • cloth mask packs
  • purchase of essential supplies and/or equipment
  • delivering meals to vulnerable people
  • supporting families

CCDC’s Crisis Fund is also still available – see previous post for details and application process.

And CCDC’s Community Funds is still open for applications should you wish to sign-up for an online course, or invest in something to improve your well-being. Again, please get in touch to ask!

Please get in touch for further information or if there is anything in particular you would like help with – we’d welcome suggestions!  For instance, would you welcome tech help to get online, or zoom your family?  Or educational/creative resources  for the kids?

Contact: info@coigachcommunity.org.uk  or phone (01854) 622 379

 

Production is under way for the Coigach Mask and you can order one for your household now:
