What we do
Strathard Community Trust is the community development trust for Aberfoyle, Kinlochard, Stronachlachar and Inversnaid. We work across the Strathard area, both independently and in partnership with other groups and agencies. We help deliver projects that aim to improve the lives of people in Strathard and the quality of the environment we live and work in. Currently, the Community Action Plan (2017-2022) provides direction to many of our activities.
How we work
The Trust was set up in 2005 as a private limited by guarantee company, with charitable status. It has a Board of Directors who are elected or co-opted from amongst the members. Three Directors are appointed by the Churches, Strathard Community Council and Aberfoyle Traders Association to represent those organisations on the Board. The Board meets every two months, and sometimes more frequently.
