All over Scotland, Community Development Trusts are enabling communities to make their aspirations and plans a reality. These organisations
- Are owned and run by the community for the community
- Aim to improve the quality of life in their area of operation
- Are independent but work in partnership with other voluntary, public and private sector organisations
- Aim to reduce dependency on grant support by generating income through enterprise and ownership of assets.
Whitburn and District Community Development Trust was launched by a voluntary group of Whitburn people in April 2010 as a Scottish Charity and a Company Limited by Guarantee and quickly earned the respect of local organisations and partners with its ‘can do’ attitude. Our mission is to assist Whitburn residents, groups, agencies and businesses to communicate and work effectively together to build a healthy, prosperous and sustainable future for our town and its people.
