Education, Leisure and Housing is responsible for a range of key services to the people of Orkney. You will meet our staff, numbering over 600, in schools and learning centres, college, libraries, swimming pools, community centres, youth clubs, sports centres and museums. Staff at School Place manage a range of services - as well as social housing, we support many of the most vulnerable through our homelessness and housing support services; we help learners of all ages overcome barriers to learning; we support communities, particularly those in remote and island locations. We secure valued services to the community through support for the Picky Centre, a range of voluntary bodies and major festivals and arts venues.
