About Us

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.

 

What We Do

As a community-led organisation, we respond to local needs.  We believe that the key to success is working together to creatively address local issues and improve the quality of life in our area;  we want to ensure through community regeneration that there is long term social, economic and environmental benefits to Balintore, Edderton, Hill of Fearn, Hilton of Cadboll, Inver, Portmahomack, Kilmuir, Logie Easter, Nigg, Shandwick and Tain.


Find out more about the work we are involved with.

 

What You Can Do

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. 


We are a community-led organisation and without our members, we would fail to exist. All of our projects derive from community demand and flourish with your involvement. Our community asked for a grass-roots approach to developing our area and to do this we need your support.

 

Our Impact

At the Trust, we work with and support individuals, community groups and businesses to access opportunities which will enable our area to become a more vibrant and sustainable community.


By working together, we can create a much bigger impact and prove to be a powerful force for positive changes within our District and leave a lasting legacy.
