Islanders are encouraged to have their say on challenges they face.

A national consultation is ongoing to form the first ever National Islands Plan.

Local people will also be asked to share the positives of island life, and examples of good practice where policy works well, so that the Plan takes into account all aspects of life in some of Scotland’s most remote communities.

The Scottish Government say: "We want the National Islands Plan to be a document that builds on what works well on Scottish islands, and addresses the challenges faced by islands and their communities."

The Plan will set out how the Scottish Government, local authorities and other public agencies might work to improve outcomes for island communities.

Scottish Ministers will be asked to report back to Scottish Parliament every year on progress towards the goals included in the National Islands Plan.

Face to face engagement with islanders is planned for the next few months.  To keep up to date, check the Events page on the Scottish Rural Network website.
