SUPPORTING A CARING & SUSTAINABLE FUTURE FOR ALL

WHO WE ARE

Our Roots

The Trust was officially formed in November 2022 as a means of taking forward the initiatives highlighted in the Community Action Plan. 

We are a charitable organisation which is owned and managed by the local community in Dunkeld, Birnam and district.  Our main role is to enable and support beneficial community projects.  These could be in any area of interest to the community and include cultural, environmental, accessibility and economic themes.​ We can also assist community groups to apply for and obtain funding.

WHAT WE DO

Our Purpose

We aim to advance citizenship and community development in the Dunkeld and Birnam area. Our work is centralised around core themes, all stemming from the community action plan. These themes include;

  • Encouraging safe and active travel,

  • Addressing issues around the lack of affordable housing,

  • Delivering improvements to physical and electronic connectivity,

  • Coordinating Community Volunteer activity,

  • Protecting the natural, built and cultural environment, including our archaeological heritage,

  • Promoting activities, including care, and the provision of facilities that underpin a strong community spirit and cultural development across all ages,

  • Supporting projects that contribute to a thriving local economy, but only to a minimal extent required to achieve the charitable purpose.

OUR SUPPORTERS

In 2023, we gratefully received funding from the 'SSE Renewables Griffin and Calliachar Community Fund',

and from 'The Gannochy Trust', these two contributions underpinned our work in 2023.


We have also received generous support from the 'Basil Death Trust', the 'Pitlochry Enchanted
Forest Community Fund' and 'Perth and Kinross Council Community Learning and Development Fund'.


In the longer term, we do aspire to develop revenue streams of our own, at least to partially support our work.
