CVO East Ayrshire is delighted to receive funding from The BIG Lottery “Our Place in Shortlees” Programme. The community have prioritised the need for small flexible spaces to improve the facilities and opportunities in the area and this funding will allow us to work with local people and organisations to establish the “Our Wee Place in Shortlees” – a new Community Hub which will be open to everyone within the Shortlees area.

The project will promote and develop a range of community activities in our new refurbished community base, engage with local people to develop their participation and interest in local activity, build strategic and long-lasting relationships and to animate local volunteers to promote our work within the area and in partnership with local groups and agencies.
