Woodlands Community Development Trust

Charity description

Woodlands Community Development Trust logo
We are a small local charity, whose work is having a big impact.

Donations are needed to help sustain three of our projects:
Woodlands Community Garden
Woodlands Community Cafe
Woodlands Workspace

Woodlands Community Garden supports over 50 families to grow their own food and our volunteer training programmes have helped people learn new skills, reduce their isolation and further develop the garden as a therapeutic space.

Our free vegetarian community café takes place on Monday evenings, feeding an average of 60-70 people per week, with meals cooked using fresh ingredients including those grown at our community garden. Our Community Café’s inclusive approach has enabled people from diverse backgrounds to work together collaboratively and enabled us to restore a sense of community and solidarity. 

Woodlands Workspace has seen us transform a derelict gap site that had lain empty for over 20 years into an exciting new community resource.   It is a vibrant new venue for meetings, workshops, art and community activities.  Letting rates are  set at below market levels so as to be affordable for community groups and local residents. 

Woodlands Community Development Trust is a registered charity concerned with the long term regeneration of Woodlands area of Glasgow – its economy, its environment, its facilities and the ‘spirit’ of Woodlands. We are community based and accountable – in our work, our style and the composition of our board of management.

We support local people in shaping the future of Woodlands in ways that are sustainable, environmentally friendly and innovative. Our key aims include supporting community-based education activities, promoting the health and well-being of our community, encouraging participation in community arts and the advancement of environment protection.

Charity No: SC008741
