The Iona Cathedral Trust trustees recognise the value of working collaboratively with other organisations and bodies. The Trustees have a good working relationship with the Iona Community and Historic and Environment Scotland, with representatives of these bodies being invited to the main meeting of the trustees each year. In 2014 the Chairman and Secretary visited Iona. Whilst on the island they had very useful discussions with representatives of the Iona Community, Historic Scotland, the National Trust for Scotland and the Iona Community Council.
The trustees have a very good working relationship with the University of Aberdeen. Particularly with the Department of Education through the development of ‘Tales of Iona’ and with the IT Department who have been instrumental in the creation of this website.
All these links are being strengthened and the new links forged with other bodies in connection with the Iona Abbey Library Project. These include local schools, Argyll and Bute Council, the University of the Highlands and Islands and the National Library of Scotland.
