a community development trust for the people of Strathard

What we do

We are a community development trust for the communities of Aberfoyle, Kinlochard, Stronachlachar and Inversnaid. We work across the Strathard area, both independently and in partnership with other groups and agencies to help deliver community projects that improve the health, well-being and economy of the area.

How we work

Strathard Community Trust was set up in 2005 as a private limited by guarantee company, with charitable status. It is run by a Board of Directors who are elected or co-opted from amongst our members. Three Directors are appointed by the Churches, the Strathard Community Council and the Aberfoyle Traders Association.

Who we are

Currently the Trust has 6 Directors. These are: John Clow, Richard Grosse, Peter Sunderland (Vice convener), Katinka Dalglish (Convener), Fiona McEwan (Treasurer and Admin Secretary) and James Kennedy
