Youth Workers

We have received funding for youth workers in Kirkcudbright for the next three years. The funding we have covers 3 part time staff for 4 hours each per week. This project will start immediately and may yet be expanded (additional hours/activities/staff) if we secure additional funds. We will be running the project from temporary premises (yet to be identified) . It will then move into the school once it is up and running. If you can suggest premises which can be used to get the centre started, please contact us.

Kirkcudbright Development Trust formed

6 Comments

As you may know we have been working on the idea of a community organisation “Kirkcudbright Development Trust” for a number of months. This organisation would support a wide range of community groups and activities, helping to bring people together, creating a stronger community body which shares resources and which has a stronger voice. As a Development Trust we also engage the support of the Development Trust Association Scotland (DTAS) which offers a wide range of support services.

The new organisation has now been awarded charitable status and will start work shortly. At the same time Kirkcudbright Community Trust will cease to exist. It is hoped that others will follow suit and amalgamate into the new organisation as well.

The new Development Trust is there to help your group/organisation and to help lead major initiatives such as the Johnston School Project. Bringing groups under one roof will also make us stronger and more effective. There is no requirement for groups to commit at this stage to join the new organisation, just to come along and learn what it can provide in the future, and the reasoning behind it.

We welcome input from anyone in the town.
