Three projects in Nairn have been awarded £15,000 Deprived Area funding for employability projects by Members of The Highland Council’s Nairn and Badenoch and Strathspey Area Committee.
£5,000 each was awarded to:
Nairn and District Citizens Advice Bureau to provided additional adviser support to the Nairn Work Club;
Nairn River Community Council to carry out a social enterprise feasibility study; and
Nairn Academy towards a school leaver activity programme running through the school year.
Leader of the Nairn and Badenoch and Strathspey Area Committee Councillor Liz MacDonald welcomed the funding approvals, she said: “I am delighted that we can support these local employability projects through the Deprived Area Fund. Any ways in which the Council can either help school leavers get into work or adults get back into work is welcome for the economy of Nairn and the surrounding area.”
