Covid 19


Organised online talks, presentations and most popularly quiz nights, free meals and grocery deliveries.


Covid 19’s global impact has been unprecedented and in response to the pandemic CDI applied for funding from Highland & Island Enterprise Supporting Communities Fund and Foundation Scotland Response, Recovery & Resilience Fund to help those in the community who were shielding, isolating and financially impacted by the pandemic.

We were successful and received funding for a virtual village hall co-ordinator, who organised online talks, presentations and most popularly quiz nights, a free meal co-ordinator who facilitated a free meal scheme offering freshly cooked meals from the kitchen at An Crùbh to those in need. We also co-ordinated volunteer delivery of groceries from the shop at An Crùbh and the option to pre-order groceries for collection to everyone who needed it within the community of Sleat.

Within the An Crubh cafe, we amended the seating plans and installed screens to afford space and separation for our customers. There was one-way traffic, hand sanitisers, table service and enhanced cleaning procedures in place. In the shop, the number of customers was limited.
