Organisation aims and objectives

Clackmannan Development Trust was set up in 2013 by local residents. Its aim is to make Clackmannan and better place to live, work and visit, restore the civic pride in the people and the historic importance of this Clackmannanshire town. The Trust promotes community participation through utilising local services and facilities, creating social links, developing wider social networks, delivering activities and groups and facilitating local forums. The Trust delivers on a number of streams of work, led by residents including Active Travel and Cycling, Heritage, Community Garden and a Caring and Connected forum that brings together key partners from the school, health centre, police, community council and third sector.
