Out And About in the Community

Out And About in the Community

With the mainland overcast walking from the harbour a magical light lit the North Isles, and then the whole sky reflected in the bay.”

A programme of activities runs throughout the year, designed to take advantage of the wide range of social, leisure, cultural, educational and physical opportunities which are available in Orkney. The programme is planned by the people who take part, and aims to provide purposeful and enjoyable activities in the community, which encourage social inclusion and general well-being.

Everyone who is interested is invited to take part in activity programmes, which include guided walks, island trips, exercise groups and a variety of other events. Activities are varied and the programme is designed to ensure that there is something for everyone. If anyone has an interest they would like to develop or explore, we can help them to access groups in the community.
