Skye Community Response Volunteers

What we do

Volunteer to help people in Skye during the Coronavirus Covid19

Skye Community Response is a response team to collaborate various volunteers and groups island wide. We take calls and emails from the public and direct them to the relevant information, organisations or volunteers that can assist them.

Latest video

Skye Community Response recently visited Portree Foodshare to find out how they are working with Isle of Skye Distillers to deliver fresh fruit and vegetables across the Isle of Skye. Watch our latest video below.

Skye Community Response would like to say a huge thank you to Skye Camanachd for their hugely successful fundraising event for our organisation. To see the highlights of this event, please play the video below.
