Development Trust

The Sanday Development Trust was formed in 2004 as a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity. The aims of the organisation are clear and summed up succinctly in its mission statement.

The main objectives of the Sanday Development Trust is to create an economically prosperous, sustainable community that is connected to the wider world, but to remain a safe, unspoilt environment where people are proud to live, able to work, to bring up and educate their children, to fulfil their own hopes and ambitions, and to grow old gracefully, enjoying the quality of life that is second to none.

From humble beginnings the Trust has grown through a number of initiatives, and now successfully delivers various projects including a new Youth and Community centre, a Recycling centre and a Heritage centre.

The Trust continually strives to create employment opportunities and now employs 6 part time staff including a Projects and Grants Officer, Ranger, Heritage Centre Assistant and Youth Development Officer.

The organisation also benefits from a wide range of volunteers who contribute to the work of the Trust in many different ways.

There are always opportunities to become involved in the work of the Trust through its current projects or through completely new initiatives.
