Aims & objectives

Cothrom is a community enterprise set up in 1992 to provide quality training opportunities for local people on the island and exploit opportunities which will raise standards of living. The new facility at Ormiclate - completed in 2007 - replaces the three previous locations with a large, state of the arts facility. The new build also seeks to fill long-standing gaps in service provision in the Southern Isles with the establishment of a nursery, skills workshop and a "one stop shop". The one stop shop was designed to offer representatives of Jobcentre Plus, Careers Scotland, Citizens Advice Bureau and the Local Authority the chance to bring their services to the community.
