Ormlie Community Association

What do we offer?

We currently offer opportunities for all stages of the employability pipeline. We offer a range of activities to help you if you're looking for work or hoping to develop some skills and increase your confidence. We hold a Work Club each Friday run from the Ormlie Centre, Henderson Street, Thurso 10.00am – 1.00pm. We can help you make initial Universal Credit applications, create CVs, help with job applications, interview skills, IT skills, confidence building etc.

For individuals who do not have access to IT or who are not confident using computers we have projects that run from the Citizens’ Advice Bureau in Wick and Thurso.

  • Thurso runs Monday to Thursday 10.00am – 2.00pm and
  • Wick runs on a Monday and Friday 10.00am – 2.00pm.

In partnership with Highlife Highland we also offer Literacy and Numeracy Skills every Friday from the Ormlie Centre Thurso – please contact us to check availability - details below.
