Pulteneytown People’s Project (known locally as ‘PPP’), A social enterprise started by the local community in 2003 with the aim of creating opportunities to improve life chances, quality of life and economic well-being.
All their profits go back into the community and the facility, their keys aims are to provide services and amenities that will improve the area.
Initially employing one and a half members of staff, PPP has grown over the past ten years and currently provides over forty sustainable jobs for local people.
Pulteney Centre has various facilities available within our multi-purpose Community, Training and Enterprise Centre. It is not only a great facility for the Caithness community, but offers something for everyone across the North Highlands.
It is a safe, fun place for young people enjoy the only soft play area north of Inverness or take part in other fun activities, while their parents and grandparents can enjoy lunch in Telford’s café or take part in sports, fitness or recreational classes.
It is also the ideal base for corporate events and functions of all sizes, and for holding business meetings and conferences in the North Highlands.
Their hard work and dedication over the years has been recognised through many awards and they have shared their practices as far away as India and the USA as well as talking at conferences across Scotland.
The culmination of all this work has been the £3.8 million purpose-built Pulteney Centre which opened in February 2012. PPP’s dream of a modern, expansive and multi-functional facility for the community has finally begun
