The Pickaquoy Centre Trust is a charitable trust registered with the Office of the Scottish Charities Regulator (OSCR). The Trust assumed responsibility for the management of The Pickaquoy Centre on 6 April 1999.
The purpose of the Trust is centred on providing sports, health, leisure, arts and learning opportunities that enhance the quality of life and improve the health of Orkney's population. We do this by offering facilities to support a wide variety of activities designed with regard to all social groups within the community and at the same time ensuring that we provide a service that surpasses the expectations of our users.
We will provide opportunities for participation in a range of sports, leisure, arts and business activities in order to improve the health, well being and quality of life of our customers. In doing so, we will strive to meet expectations, provide service excellence and offer value for money.
