Thank you for showing interest and visiting the Our Island Home projects page. Our Island Home was created as an information, advice and support service for young people in the Hebrides to help them to access affordable housing and remain in their island communities. We also want to help push the delivery of new affordable housing by supporting and advising communities on their options, feasibility, demonstrating housing need and helping to identify land and grants available. OIH encourages partnership working between communities, housing associations and local authorities to achieve the best possible solutions to rural and island housing issues. We believe in bringing people and organisations together to support each other, providing experience and expertise that will help deliver rural housing and take action against rural housing issues.
We are currently working with several different communities across the Hebrides and you can read status updates on all of them here:
