Local Trust’s mission is to enable residents to make their communities and their areas even better places in which to live.
They do this by helping residents develop and use their skills and confidence to identify what matters most to them, and to take action to change things for the better, now and in the future. They provide a mix of funding and finance to support people to make sustainable change, maximize impact and make the best use of scarce resources.
They believe that a community and resident led approach to creating lasting change:
- develops the skills and confidence of the people involved and enables them to work with others to the benefit of their community
- builds on the opportunities and assets available in each community
- creates lasting, long term solutions.
