Point and Sandwick Trust (PAS), based in the Outer Hebrides, built and operates the UK’s largest community wind farm and has been recognised as leading the way in community renewable energy.  The Trust uses the income from community generated wind power to support local social, cultural, educational and environmental development. 

Please join Social Enterprise Scotland for this unique Community Learning Exchange to hear how PAS has developed and financed a significant asset through long term community consultation, leveraging £14mn of loans; and how they developed their role as a community anchor organisation using their profits to establish more and strengthen existing social/community enterprises.

In addition, there will be plenty of time to network and the Exchange will also include visits to some local tourist attractions.

The visit will be informal, interactive and discussions will be tailored to allow people to benefit fully from the day.

The Community Learning Exchange programme open to social enterprises and is fully funded through Scottish Community Alliance, so all your travel, subsistence and accommodation costs are covered.  Note – a shorter visit is possible if that timing suited you better, the main learning day is Wed 19th Oct.  Places are limited to enable people to get the most out of the visit, please contact Jayne for more information
