what we do..

Hire Us

As a Development Trust we can offer advice and support to other community groups, individuals and social enterprises. If you have an idea within our community and want to start a non-profit organisation, or if you are a group looking for help and advice with community engagement, funding applications or third sector project management – then get in touch!

Volunteer With Us

We have lots of volunteering opportunities over a range of diverse projects. If you are looking to help the community, build your skills or boost your C.V, or if you just have a strong interest in one of our areas of development. Then a flexible volunteering role, within one of our many working groups, would be perfect for you.

Work for Us

Since 2016 the Trust has grown from having one member of staff to providing six local jobs. UCT are always looking to expand our team and even when we are not hiring, there is always work to be done. If you have an interest in the work we do, or you have specific skills, that would be useful to our organisation, please get in touch with one of our friendly members of staff!

how we support our community

Working with You

UCT also delivers discrete projects that bring economic, environmental or social benefit to our remit area. All of our work is community led, and we consult and engage with our communities on a continuous basis, in order to highlight areas of regeneration or development which are most wanted or needed by our residents.

Community Benefit

UCT is setting up a community benefit fund, the fund will help distribute the surplus income generated from community projects back into the local area. The benefit fund is expected to be operational by October 2018. Local groups and projects will be able to apply to the fund, in order to ‘Kick-Start’ new projects, or to apply for revenue and capital to support existing initiatives!

Anchor Organisation

UCT acts as an ‘anchor organisation’ which means that we often support other third sector, voluntary or not-for-profit groups. Sometimes these groups have limited capacity to employ their own staff, or they may need advice on how to set-up projects and bring in investment, they may also use the Trust to undertake initial feasibility work into projects that they believe will benefit our communities.

Wow! Thank you so much to everyone who voted for Ullapool Swim Club Riding the Wave Project at the 3-D fund today. The £2000 will give a huge boost to the club to help cover costs as it grows. The funding will help keep membership fees down so that its accessible to as many 8-18 year olds as possible and now we can buy new kit, pay for more pool time, go to and hold more galas and train more volunteers to train the new members.

On behalf of Lochbroom Community Council I’d like to congratulate the organisers of the 3D fund and all today’s presenters for a first class event. Also a huge thank you to all those who voted for the Morefield Park zip wire bid. We’ll be trying to get the ball rolling on this as soon as possible

On behalf of the UHS Charity Committee, we would like to thank all who voted for us and supported us yesterday. We are very excited to be given the opportunity to start this new project. We would also like to thank everyone who organised the event which we thought was a huge success. Also, well done all the other groups as well whether they got the money or not!

Community Led Projects

Ullapool Community Trust recently delivered a Participatory Budgeting project. The Lochbroom 3D Fund, Discuss, Decide, Do! The community came together to decide how money could be put to best use on the ground in our area. This was part of the Scottish Government's Community Choices Fund, which empowers communities participate and take an active role in how public funds are targeted at a local level. To find out more about Participatory Budgeting, visit the PB Scotland Website: https://pbscotland.scot/
