Cambusbarron Community Development Trust (CCDT) was established in 2010 with the aim of helping local organisations deliver projects and services to people within the Cambusbarron community. CCDT has the administrative capability and independent leadership which enables Cambusbarron organisations to achieve their objectives within the community. CCDT supervises distribution of grant funds, encourages applications for new funds and supports those applications. CCDT purpose is:
1 To advance environmental protection or improvement including preservation, sustainable development and conservation of the natural environment, the maintenance, improvement or provision of environmental amenities for the Community and/or the preservation of buildings or sites of architectural, historic or other importance to the Community.
