Welcome to ILM Highland
ILM Highland is an independent social enterprise with charitable status. It was set up in 1994 to help people into sustainable employment: the ‘Intermediate Labour Market’, which is where the initials for our company name ‘ILM’ originate.
More recently, ILM has set up and established a Small Works service carrying out small maintenance jobs, including insulation, for organisations, businesses and the wider public.
Over the years, ILM has successfully forged strong partnerships and links across the North of Scotland. These have included local authorities, the HIE network, housing associations, and increasingly the business sector.
Success has been achieved through an approach based on partnership working. By winning contracts and service level agreements as well as building up other income streams, the company has been able to deliver a range of services that have provided real benefit to the Highlands of Scotland.
We strive to be a self-sustaining social enterprise. Over the years, ILM has therefore moved away from a grant-funding regime, preferring to focus on earned income and delivering services through contracting. By doing this, ILM can meet its corporate objectives in a sustainable way.
