This is the Community website for BCT (Belhelvie Community Trust).

We were formed in February 2014. We are a Development trust and have applied to be a member of the Development trust Association Scotland to further our aims, learn from other trusts, develop best practice and contribute to its community of members.  Click here on the link to learn more about the DTA Scotland

The development trust is an idea from various people n the community who have come together to explore how, through getting local groups to work together can co-ordinate and create new groups, social enterprises reduce isolation, reduce poverty, increase resilience and create a caring community.

North-east Scotland has marked a UK offshore wind first following successful installation of the first pioneering suction bucket jacket foundation for Vattenfall’s 11-turbine European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC).

First of the gigantic, game-changing suction bucket jacket foundations was installed in just 15 hours. Find out more here: https://corporate.vattenfall.co.uk/…/scotland-hosts-uk-win…/

Vattenfall as part of this major development are setting up a fund to provide grants and support for the community. This fund is out for consultation with a number of local bodies and the launch will be announced following feedback from organisations such as Voluntary serice Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire Voluntary Action, Aberdeenshire Council etc.

The fund will provide much needed funding for local groups and projects including those in Blackdog, Balmedie and Belhelvie parish generally.
