Overview of Columba 1400

Columba 1400 is a charity and social enterprise based in Scotland and founded by Norman Drummond. We help young people discover their potential either by working directly with them or by working with the key adults in their lives.

Motivated by his work with young people from tough realities, Norman wanted to give them the time and space to develop their true potential for leadership and good citizenship.

Consequently, he founded Columba 1400 and in 1997 he worked with the community on Skye to create our leadership centre in Staffin. This is a space where young people can explore their values together, discuss and practice leadership, and take their learning back into their communities.

Since then, more than 12,000 young people and their key adults have taken part in our values-based leadership academies, which have often proved to be an important turning point in their lives.

More than 20 years since the first young person stepped through our doors, we have extended our scope to reach young people in the community, head teachers, senior leaders, parents, student teachers and to engage with services and people across whole local authorities.

Our values of Awareness, Focus, Creativity, Integrity, Perseverance and Service underpin all our leadership academies and provide a framework for young people to discover their true potential in life, education, work and community.
