Welcome to Project 81 Youth and Community Enterprise

"A Centre of Excellence in the heart of the Community"

Project 81 is an umbrella organisation comprising Garelochhead's Community Centre - Centre 81, our Community Gym - Active 81, an award winning Youth Group - Route 81 and a delightful hostel providing accomodation for individuals and groups on the shores of The Gareloch.

We are a not for profit Charity, non-relgious, non-political, all inclusive organisation. To find out more about our history see the presentation detailing how the Project grew from a youth group in a toy cupboard to the thriving organisation we have today.
