GALE, or Gairloch and Loch Ewe Action forum, is a community owned and managed charitable development company. Its key aim is to develop and improve the way of life and standard of living in the Gairloch and Loch Ewe area. This involves working with a range of community groups and volunteers to develop sustainable community projects that tackle important issues within our community, such as improving the social life, the local economy and the environment.
GALE carries out a range of community projects and if you live in or have visited the Gairloch and Loch Ewe area you are bound to have benefited from some of them. Have a look at our past and current projects by using the menu on the left.
How our Work is Funded
GALE is managed by a group of enthusiastic volunteers who support our team of paid staff and give their time freely. We make a small charge for most of our services but rely heavily on voluntary donations and fundraising activities to make up the shortfall. We also have a small shop at Gairloch Tourist Information Centre where all our products are sold in aid of GALE work.
