Community Renewal Trust
Our vision is a Scotland without persistent poverty or inequity. Our mission is to innovate, learn and share how to lift neighbourhoods out of poverty using whole-person, whole-neighbourhood approaches.
We have worked in seventeen neighbourhoods and achieved huge impact both in terms of supporting individuals and building sustainable community capacity/leadership. In two neighbourhoods we have created and then spun-out independent community development trusts.
Currently we focus our work on work in three neighbourhoods – each acting like a community development trust but within our group structure. These are:
- Community Renewal Pennywell (in Edinburgh)
- Community Renewal Rom Romeha (Scotland’s Roma Community Development Trust based in Govanhill)
- Community Renewal Lifting Neighbourhoods Together in Bingham, Magdalene and the Hays (in Edinburgh)
Services this organisation delivers
