Communities in the Highlands and Islands offer a diverse range of resources, opportunities and skills. HIE's ambition is to see every community across the area reach its full potential.
We have been nurturing the development of dynamic sustainable communities for over 50 years. We work alongside local groups and organisations to make a real impact on people's quality of life.
We are building a close relationship with a wide range of social enterprises working in our communities, helping them to grow. We also deliver initiatives focused on developing the region's remote and fragile areas.
In shaping the future, HIE recognises the value of our communities' heritage. We actively support the development of innovative opportunities in arts and culture, in crofting and for Gaelic.
