WHAT WE WANT TO DO
The community of Canna is small but ambitious, and we think our island has a great future. We want more people to have the chance to live and work in this beautiful place, to contribute to our community, and make Canna a thriving place in the 21st Century.
HOW WILL WE ACHIEVE IT
Canna needs more affordable homes for new residents and families. We want to build three new houses on sites that the National Trust for Scotland will make available to the community.
The houses will be community owned and managed, warm, energy-efficient and let at affordable rents.
WHAT WE NEED
We are working with the Communities Housing Trust and the Scottish Government to raise the £750,000 we need to build the houses.
Finance will include a mix of grant and loans, but the community also has to raise £200,000 to complete the funding package.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
We have started a fund-raising campaign to help meet our target. We expect a significant proportion to come from charitable foundations and trusts, but donations from visitors and supporters will really help us on our way.
If you would like to make a donation to help us build our future we would be really grateful!
Also, feel free to come and visit us if you have not been to our island before...
If you have visited us before you will always be welcomed back to share our island during your stay!
