The base in Kenneth Street will be opened later this week
Chairwoman of the Inverness City SNP group, Jill McAlpine, said: “Since the 2014 independence referendum grassroots activism has been a leading force in Highland politics and this new hub will provide SNP supporters with a base to get involved in local campaigning activities.
“As with all our local SNP campaign efforts, this hub will be funded by our local supporters and run by volunteers.”
Inverness SNP MP Drew Hendry said: “Here in the Highlands, thousands of families have been left destitute because of welfare cuts imposed at Westminster, our EU citizen friends and neighbours have been made to feel unwelcome by an increasingly right-wing Tory government and our economy continues to be threatened by Brexit.
“I believe we can do better than this and I know it is a view shared by many Highland residents.”
Mr Hendry will perform the official opening of the new hub, along with Highlands and Islands MSP Maree Todd.
Afterwards both are due to speak on the subject of A Fairer Scotland, at Merkinch Community Centre, at 7pm.
The event, including a Q&A, has been organised by Inverness’s pro-independence Yes group and will be open to the public.
