PROJECTS

COMMUNITY SHOP

@twentyone.  After closing the previous premises in February 2019 new premises were extensively refurbished and we re-opened in June 2019.

 

The shop supports recycling and reuse, reducing waste and financial surpluses are donated back
to local grassroots organisations. 

 

The Community Shop is delighted to accept donations of brick-a-brack, CD's, DVD's, books, cutlery, and crockery. Due to the limited storage space it is unable to sell large furniture items

 

It is open Mon - Fri from 10am until 2pm and on Sat -10am until 4pm.  Closed Sundays.

YOUNGER PEOPLE

Developing Working Potential.  This project works with Campbeltown Community Shop as a resource to help disadvantaged or vulnerable young people in South Kintyre.  Shop volunteers mentor the young people and give opportunities to gain real-life work experience and skills, improving their confidence and self-belief. Young people gain experience valuable to their CV and future training and employment prospects.

Working Potential is funded by Robertson Trust. It continues to develop a range of support to younger people and resources are now being
produced based on feedback from those participating.


MSE Fund has kindly funded us to deliver financial support and this will result in a
guide suitable for those with learning disabilities or younger people entitled ‘Money,
Money, Money’.

EVERYONE

Community Led Action.  Funded by Big Lottery Scotland, this supports the development work of the
space@twentyone in Campbeltown.

 

Having recently moved premises we know have

a small area available where people can come together and share interests, chats and find social connections and new friendships.  We hope some of these chats and get together's will give us an insight into what is important for local people and shape the focus of our future activities.


This project, designed from the local community aims to support three activities:

a local volunteer led shop

the provision of workshop and training in small crafts, and supported learning for literacy, numeracy and money management.

The Shed – formerly Campbeltown Men’s shed.   The Community Bureau was approached to take over the management of this small group and now operates as part of our workstreams.   Men of all ages are welcome to come along and take part where they can share existing skills, learn new ones as simply enjoy the company of others who have similar interests.

Conservation.  We have just recently been awarded funding from the Nineveh Trust to increase awareness of conservation issues and how these issues can be tackled. . This will take place in North West Argyll over several months.
