The Network

Development trusts are part of Scotland’s fastest growing regeneration network. They are diverse in nature: large and small, rural and urban, mainland and island based. What development trusts all share in common however is a determination to see their community or neighbourhood flourish, through community-led activity, partnership working and enterprise.

Over the last ten years we have seen the development trust network grow, and the enterprises, services and activities which we all run expand massively.  This has led to an unprecedented level of recognition from the Scottish Government and others, an awareness that development trusts have more reach into communities than almost any other organisation.
