Community News 17th March: Funding Secured for LCDT Community Recovery Plan from Covid-19

Linlithgow Community Development Trust is delighted to have secured a grant from the Scottish Government’s Adapt and Thrive Programme.

This programme aims to support third sector organisations adapt to the challenges presented by COVID-19 and build back better to thrive in the future.

The grant will support us to deliver a recovery plan that reflects on our current operations and priorities, and determine which areas need to change, flex, innovate, or grow in order to be resilient and financially sustainable during and post COVID-19.

A key part of our plan is to carry out a community consultation over the next few months. This extensive dialogue with members, organisations and across the wider community will help identify needs and priorities. So that together, looking to the future, we can design and develop community-led services and amenities to make the Linlithgow Ward an even better place to live and work.

Look out for our initial members’ consultation coming soon!

Your views and contribution are really valued as we progress this work. And if you are interested in helping with the consultation process you can contact Pamela for an informal chat about volunteer opportunities on 07981 922 490 or by email on [email protected].
