All communities have people with skills, talents and gifts, places (both buildings and green space) that are valued and loved as well as awe-inspiring levels of volunteering and activism. Sometimes though, there is a need to galvanise these assets to make things happen. We have a community team who will work with local people in a place (no matter how apparently rich or poor) to develop a vision that will make that a more vibrant place to live, work and visit. This is visionary – articulating where a community wants to be – but also practical, setting out achievable projects.
To this end we deliver Community Action Plans in areas across Scotland. We deliver three of the Big Lottery’s asset based Our Place contracts in Fife, Dundee and Falkirk and we lead on a mental health involvement project in Angus.

"Renfrew Development Trust was just a steering group of local residents and then we appointed Community Enterprise to carry out development of our community action plan. We now have a long term plan based on genuine community engagement and buy in. Thanks."
