Tain & District Development Trust was established in 2017 to benefit the local communities in our ward (Tain, Balintore, Edderton, Hill of Fearn, Hilton, Inver, Portmahomack, Nigg and Shandwick) through community and business engagement.
A consultation was organised in 2017 to outline the forming a community-led organisation for Tain and Surrounding areas- with the aim of boosting social, environmental and economic development.
The consultation was an opportunity to outline the proposed idea of forming a community-led organisation for Tain and Surrounding areas, with the aim of boosting social, environmental and economic development. From this initial consultation we were overwhelmed by the positive response that we received on the evening.
Our passion for developing the community is the heart of what drives our organisation forwards. We aimed to put our district on the map as a place to work, rest and play. 2018 witnessed the introduction of the Community Markets and the Community Awards. Both of these initiatives were hugely successful.
With plenty of love and support- we were able to develop the Community Enterprise Hub [located across the road from the YMCA]. Equipped with hot-desking and meeting room facilities, this provided the Trust with capacity to serve the needs of local businesses and organisations. In 2019, this witnessed the introduction of 4 hired members of staff- which has enabled the Hub to operate.
We are proud to serve our community- and we are overwhelmed with all your support.
