Lanark Community Development Trust is a charitable, non-profit body which carries out projects for the common good. It is an independent, volunteer-led organisation which is part of a growing network of Development Trusts which exist across Scotland and the UK. Here in Lanark, we aspire to develop and deliver priority community projects which have a social, environmental and economic impact. We do not and will not deliver on the responsibilities of statutory authorities, but rather seek to add value to existing activity.
At any given time, well be working on two or three projects which will be at various stages of development anything from a fledgling idea right through to a fully planned and funded initiative. Were keen to be recognised as a body which can support and facilitate other local organisations, acting as an umbrella or incubator for smaller groups which may not have the resources to enable them to deliver on their own.
We want to deliver projects and initiatives which are genuine local priorities and so were keen to engage with, partner and build relationships with any individual or group which shares our ideals.
