Community Work is about strengthening local communities and supports people to become confident individuals, effective contributors, responsible citizens, and successful learners. The Community Work Officer provides support, information and advice to assist individuals, groups and communities to develop the skills, understanding and confidence to get involved in their community, tackle community issues and influence change.
This includes consulting with communities about issues that are important to them, assisting groups to develop ideas into viable projects, assisting groups to identify and secure funding, helping groups to plan, manage and assess their work effectively, and help to achieve their aims and aspirations.
The building also provides a venue for the North Mainland Learning Centre which is managed by Andrew Anderson who is the Community Learning Lecturer for the area for Shetland College. The Delting Registrar Sheena Summers also uses the office for her base.
