The Highlands and Islands Development Board (HIDB) was the Government's regional development agency for the Highlands and Islands of Scotland from 1965 to 1991. It was established to help improve the economic and social conditions in the region and enable it to make an effective contribution to the national economy. The HIDB's Community Co-operatives Scheme ran from 1977 to 1989, offering support and funding for the establishment of community co-operatives across the Highlands and Islands. Inspired by community co-operatives in the Irish Gaeltacht, the HIDB scheme was piloted initially in the Western Isles and within the first year of operation four co-operatives (known locally in the Gaelic form, Co-Chomuinn) had been set up at Ness, Pairc, Eriskay and Vatersay. Within two years the scheme was extended to other areas and by 1984 there were nineteen community co-operatives trading in the region. The scheme ultimately enabled the creation of over a hundred self-sustaining community owned enterprises throughout the Highlands and Islands. Articles on the scheme and other HIDB work were published in 'North 7'. This was published by the HIDB as a quarterly newspaper from 1967 and in 1971 changed to magazine format.
