It was thrilling to be able to welcome two new families to the new affordable housing. Over the last six or seven years many people have been involved in the project to provide affordable family housing within the area.

At times it seemd this would never happen but people kept working and putting together plans. A huge 'thank you' to all involved, at any time, in the affordable housing project.

December 2016

What a year 2016 has been! Thanks to all who have, not just this year, but since the founding of USCA in 2011, done an incredible amount to bring us to this point, and to help to give the community a secure future….

Whatever achievements are celebrated on this site, they arise from the community - the massive efforts and contributions and good will of folks who live and work along the north-west coast of Mull, and on Ulva and Gometra, hugely supported by the many family and friends elsewhere on the islands, and beyond.

Both individuals and organisations have played a part, and USCA wishes to express particular thanks to the Local Development Officers, present and past: Cally Fleming, Alasdair Satchell, Colin Morrison, and Sam Jones, and to the Housing Project Officer, (now LDO) Helen MacDonald, MICT’s General Manager, Moray Finch, and all at MICT for their utterly invaluable work on behalf of the community here, which underpins all the current projects you will read about on this site.

Each has been doing what they can, out of an appreciation for the people of this area and for the place itself. The world keeps changing and challenging, but there is an ongoing hope that younger people will be able to settle, to work and grow and to live in harmony with each other and with the earth in this place, and that the older members of the community will be helped, even in small ways, to live here happily and securely.

At long last, so much of what USCA members have been hoping and working for has started to take shape. Please click on our news items opposite to find out more…
