Invitation to join the Scottish Islands
If you feel high transport costs,
restricted employment opportunities and poor
services pose a threat to the sustainability of
island communities in Scotland, especially the
smallest ones, joining the Scottish Islands
Federation is another way to get your island
communitys voice heard.
Through its membership of ESIN - the
European Small Islands Network, SIF is working to
promote the smaller islands interests at European
level, as these are not necessarily represented by
larger organisations such as the Confederation of
Peripheral Maritime Regions (CPMR).
Developing a sustainable island
economy, protection of the island environment,
renewable energy, transport are among the issues SIF
highlighted during the European Elections.
Federation also wants to engage locally with the
councils and any other body that have an impact on
island life on issues that particularly affect
living and working on Scottish Islands.
We are therefore inviting your
community group to join the Federation. The long
term prosperity and survival of our islands are our
aims, and your input is essential.
Membership runs from 1
November to 31 October at a cost of £20 for
community and voluntary groups. Membership forms
can be downloaded here.
To join, your group must have a
constitution and has a Board/Committee which is
elected in accordance with democratic principles.
Full details of membership classes and eligibility
are given in our Articles
and Memorandum of Association.
We hope that your group can join and
participate in the Scottish Islands Federation.
