Empowering Our Community
There are some fantastic examples out there of what can be achieved within a community when individuals, groups and businesses work together. Our District is no exception to this and as your community facilitator, we are making it our mission to empower, connect and involve local people in the creation of new opportunities that will lead us to long-lasting and meaningful change within Tain & District.
What We Do
Our goal is to improve the social, economic and environmental welfare of this community. Whether it is through training, new project development, or building lasting relationships- our vision is focused on creating a sustainable future. You can find out more about what we do and how you can get involved below:
Tain & District Development Trust was established in 2017 following a community-wide consultation that highlighted a desire from local people for a grass-roots approach towards making our community a better place to live, work and play. You can discover more about our story and organisation within the "About Us" section.
As a Development Trust we are tasked with facilitating social, economic and environmental growth within the Ward 7 area, which includes: Tain, Balintore, Edderton, Hill of Fearn, Hilton of Cadboll, Inver, Portmahomack, Nigg and Shandwick. Our projects stem from community consultation and demand- and you can find out more about the work we are involved with.
As a community-led organisation all our projects flourish through community involvement. Together we create a louder voice and a powerful force towards change within our District. The Community Enterprise Hub is the cornerstone to all of our community work- and we aim to offer services that will empower, connect and involve all members of our area.
The Community Awards were established to recognise the work and passion of volunteers, groups and businesses in the District. Whether it is someone who has cared for others, donated their time to volunteering, assisting within the local community, or who generally makes a difference- we aim to recognise those who make our community a better place to live, work, rest and place
We are a community-led organisation and without our community members we would fail to exist. All of our projects derive from community demand and flourish with community involvement. Our community asked for a grass-roots approach to developing our area and to do this we NEED your support.
