About Us

The focus of Cirencester Community Development Trust (CCDT) is the enhancement of the community life of the people of Cirencester and the surrounding area.

Our key aims are:

  • to help to make Cirencester a great place to live;
  • to assist in community development in Cirencester;
  • to help young people build skills and access opportunity;
  • to advance the Arts & support understanding of the history and heritage of the town.

CCDT’s Town Team provides a forum for partnership working between the community, business, education, and the arts. Our strategic priorities for 2015-16 centre on enablement; with a specific focus on sustainability, innovation and access to opportunity. CCDT will facilitate partnerships and collaborative working; providing seed funding and a framework of governance, to kick start community-focussed projects and initiatives in and around Cirencester.

CCDT was created out of the former Cirencester Community Development Partnership. Aspects of the Our Future Cirencester Community Plan are embedded in our thinking.

We have provided management support, governance structures, and start-up funding for activities and projects that have positively impacted the community of Cirencester; including the Hare Festival and the Phoenix Festival.

If you would like become involved and find out more about the work of CCDT, or if you have a project idea that can benefit from our support, please contact us.
