Local Trust’s vision of the future is that each area we work with is resilient, confident and a good place to live.

Local Trust’s mission is to enable residents to make their communities and their areas even better places in which to live.

We do this by helping residents develop and use their skills and confidence to identify what matters most to them, and to take action to change things for the better, now and in the future.

We provide a mix of funding and finance to support people to make sustainable change, maximise impact and make the best use of scarce resources.

We believe that a community and resident led approach to creating lasting change:

Underlying this approach is a belief that residents have a capacity and desire to drive change, and can achieve lasting and positive results when supported by those they trust and respect thereby building skills, confidence, networks, relationships and expertise in each community.

You can read more about our approach in our document which describes our strategy for 2018-2021.
