Lochaber Hope is expanding the services that it currently offers to include a new woodworking focused social enterprise branch: The Workshop. Our inaugural project will be to build a skiff – a primarily therapeutic project intended to encourage the well-being of participants through the production of something which will be used to the benefit of others. The skiff will be of the St Ayles design, and will be unique in that it will be built for disabled access. We are excited to launch this project and are keen to identify participants.
