The Sandwick Social and Economic Development SCIO (SSEDS) was primarily set up “To provide facilities and services with the object of improving the conditions of life for the persons for whom the facilities and services are primarily intended.”

SSEDS currently comprises five trustees and one development worker.  The organisation was founded in 2001 and converted to a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) in 2014. SSEDS continues to be involved in many projects that Sandwick and Hoswick communities both benefit from as well as the whole of Shetland.

Community Health and Wellbeing

We are passionate about helping the more vulnerable in our wider community. We are working with Alzheimer Scotland’s dementia advisors who support you, your family and your community.

We have set aside time and space to offer a friendly welcoming space where people coping with dementia are welcome and can get together. Jan Bee Brown and Kirsten supports the sessions and has impressed us all with her storytelling and shanties. There is also a monthly session for carers to get together on the last tuesday of every month. There have been some fundraising afternoons held in the visitor centre with poets, musicians and storytelling with tea and fancies.

 We also work in partnership with other community organisations to help identify community development needs and assist them with project opportunities and fund finding using our extensive experience and knowledge to secure funding applications for the community.

To date, we’ve worked with many organisations creating cycle and walk paths to boost active travel in the area and make it safer to do so. Secured and preserved the Sandsayre pier which is used by the sailing club, Mousa ferry and other local users. Created areas with interpretation boards.
