    Our Work About Us

Welcome to The Rural Development Trust

Established in 2004 the Rural Development Trust aims to develop and deliver projects which tackle rural issues and improve life for residents of rural communities.

We have been involved in a variety of projects in recent years and undertake a range of work including community capacity building, local energy provision and community transport. Currently we host the Community Action Lanarkshire project, we have managed and administered the LEADER programme in South Lanarkshire, and were a key partner in the successful Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership (CAVLP) funded by Heritage Lottery.

Please explore this site for more information on our projects, past, present and future.

Community Support

RDT work throughout the Lanarkshire Leader area, working with rural communities on local projects.

Through the Community Action Lanarkshire (CAL) project, RDT are working with rural communities in North and South Lanarkshire to plan and develop community projects. Community action plans are becoming an increasingly important tool for communities to realise their potential and identify opportunities for positive change. CAL are currently helping several communities produce action plans, as well as support with driving projects forward.
