It is now over a year since the Community Alliance Trust (CAT) was set up and began developing its programme of activities in Craigmillar. The Trust has been working away at developing its board and membership and has secured significant funding from the Climate Challenge Fund to set up the Green House Project which is providing energy advice and fuel saving ideas for local people.
CAT is delighted that PARC has recognised us as the preferred bidder for the White House and has asked us to prepare a full business plan for running it as a community hub. Plans are now being developed and will be presented to the PARC board at the end of the year.
CAT is now working with the community to develop the membership of the Trust – membership is open to people living in the Greater Craigmillar area (Craigmillar Community Council area). This enables people to get involved in supporting the work of the trust and to take part in the further regeneration of Craigmillar.
To join CAT or for more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0131 657 0500.
