The Alba Heritage Trust, with funding from Bòrd na Gàidhlig and The Architectural Heritage Fund, has commissioned Impact Hub Inverness to explore the possibility of setting up a high-quality Gaelic Cultural Centre in Inverness. The Centre would be aimed at people interested in Highland culture and the Gaelic language and would include a range of services and facilities. All staff at the proposed centre would be Gaelic speakers. We would like to gather your views in this survey on this exciting opportunity. One possible location for this would be the Dr Black Memorial Hall on the river front in Inverness City Centre (pictured above). If you would like a hard copy of the survey in Gaelic or English, or if you wish to speak to the study team, please contact Mary Riddoch on 01463 715533, or email: email@example.com.
We are delighted to welcome the succesfull winners of the HIE funded sponsorship package for young entrepreneurs who will be joining us here at Impact Hub Inverness this year - Nicole Barrett and Rosie Gray. Nicole and Rosie will be with us for the equivalent of a day a week and will benefit from our advice and support as they develop and grow their business ideas.
Nicole has already started her business, Buckie Buddies, which offers companionship, errands and cleaning services to elderly and disabled people within the community. Rosie, from Kincraig, is passionate about her local community, about sustainable food and the great outdoors so we are looking forward to mentoring her as she works towards creating a new business that brings all those strands together.
Based on the strength of applications and with some funding from the Scottish Government, we are also pleased to support a further two young people to develop their business ideas - Kristina Petkova currently a student at UHI here in Inverness, and Kimberley Buckthorp who has created Will I Be Clothing based in Ullapool. We look forward to working with them over the course of the coming Year of Young People 2018!
