The Tingwall, Whiteness and Weisdale Community Council (TWWCC) was created to promote the well-being of our community: by finding out what you want, representing this to the Shetland Islands Council, and by taking whatever actions are practical to help the interests of the community.

Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month and are generally open to the public. The next meeting will be 7:00pm on 17th July 2024, at Whiteness & Weisdale Public Hall. (click here for the Agenda)


About the TWWCC

The Tingwall, Whiteness and Weisdale Community Council is one of 18 Community Councils in Shetland: voluntary organisations set up by Shetland Islands Council as the most local tier of elected representation. Our role is to act as a voice on behalf of local communities, and we aim to represent a full cross-section of the community and encourage people to get involved regardless of gender, race, age, disability, nationality or sexual orientation. Members are all people who live in the area and the Community Council is both non-party political and non-sectarian. The Community Council is made up of:

Applying for a grant

There are two main sources of funding:

  1. Each Community Council has a limited amount each year to support local community projects. To apply to the TWWCC, please download a TWWCC grant application form and send it to the Clerk (the address is included in the form).

  2. The Shetland Community Benefit Fund (SCBF) Advanced Grant Scheme is open to groups, organisations, charities, as well as some businesses and individuals, throughout Shetland. All applications are made to SCBF, who then share these with the Community Council for a funding decision. To apply to the SCBF, please go to ‘How to apply to the SCBF Advanced Grant Scheme’.
