Urras an Taobh Sear – Staffin Community Trust was set up to represent everybody who lives within the community of Staffin and to develop projects which are beneficial to the social and economic welfare of the district.
At present SCT is delighted to have more than 100 people now registered as members and would like to grow that as much as we can. SCT would like to have as many Staffin people, or those with strong links to the district, join as members as possible – and it is very straightforward.
A member requires to support the work of the SCT in principle but does not require to attend monthly meetings unless they serve as a director on the board. A member must be resident in the district of Staffin or have strong links with the community. Members will have a right to vote at the AGM if so desired, and future board members can only be drawn from the membership. If for any reason SCT encounters bankruptcy, then each member will be liable for the maximum sum of £1.
Staffin Community Trust Limited is a company limited by guarantee and, in the event of the company being wound up while you are a member – or within one year thereafter – you would agree to contribute no more than £1 sterling, if required.
If anybody would like to join the SCT as a member please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone the office on 01470 562 464.
