Who are we?
Thurso Community Development Trust formed in late January 2018. Following an inspirational presentation at a Public Meeting in December 2017 by Kyle of Sutherland Development Trust a group of Thurso folk came forward with the hope and desire to achieve similar community led development for the town. This group have formed our initial Steering Group and since January have been working on establishing the Trust.
We have sought advice from Development Trust Association Scotland and a host of organisations and agencies, we have formed as a two-tier Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation with a constitution. We've set up bank accounts, we've produced lots of paperwork, taken lessons on governance for charities. We have had many, many, meetings and most importantly we have embarked on widespread Community Consultation to ask YOU, the people of Thurso what you think of the town and how it can be improved.
We now have the results of our Community Consultation ready to publish and are working on the seeking funding for the initial identified projects from the needs identified. You can help us in achieving these projects by becoming a member of Thurso Community Development Trust. The larger the membership the more successful we are likely to be in gaining funding and support external agencies. It also gives you a say in our future direction.
There is also still time to join our steering group, if you would like to be involved please get in touch for further details.
