Supporting communities to deliver economic and social impacts is a central part of HIE’s approach to achieving sustainable inclusive growth across the Highlands and Islands. HIE’s support to date has been able to:
• Substantially increase the capacity of local communities to undertake community-led development
• Support communities to address market failure in service delivery, especially in more rural and remote areas
• Develop income-generating assets.
To ensure our support continues to meet the needs of our community clients we periodically undertake reviews and development new programmes. This project will enhance the support HIE provides mainly to Account Managed Communities and to smaller scale social enterprises.
In support of this exercise, HIE are holding a market engagement event at 10.30am on Tuesday 12th December 2017 at our main office in An Lochran, 10 Inverness Campus, Inverness. There will also be facilities for joining this meeting, via a link up, at some of our area offices as detailed in the documentation in PCS.
In order to attend, interested parties must send the names of those attending (limited to max 2 per organisation) and the location you will be using, to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Tuesday 5th December using the title “SC PIN MARKET ENGAGEMENT DAY” in your email header.
Further details on this exercise, the process and the associated documentation can be obtained by registering an interest in the PIN on PCS and downloading the relevant documentation.
