Carloway Community Association Asset Transfer

Carloway | 2020 | Commission

Community Enterprise has supported projects in Carloway for over 5 years from the development of the Neolithic broch to angling on the estate. We undertook open meetings and community consultation which led to a business plan to take on the centre as a celebration of rural Lewis life.

I am pleased to commend this organisation. The spread of skills and expertise offered by Community Enterprise is exceptional and helps to give confidence that their decisions and judgments are reliable."
