The Uig Development Trust was originally set up as a limited company in order to facilitate the community purchasing the Uig Community Shop. Uig Community Co-operative now run and manage the shop, providing a lifeline for the community and its' many visitors. Uig Community Shop pay a monthly rent to Uig Development Trust which can then be used to invest in community projects. Historically Uig Development Trust (as a limited company) was paying corporation tax every month. This year, after months of hard work from the volunteer members of Uig Development Trust, it was finally transitioned into a SCIO (Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation).
