Sandbank Community Development Trust was formed in 2002 by a group of local people who shared a common aim: to bring the people of Sandbank together and promote our local community. The trust is a charitable company limited by Guarantee, members liability is limited to a maximum of £1.

The function of the Trust is to facilitate projects that the community want to take forward, to purchase land and assets for community use and to raise money and apply for grants to make those things happen.   The ultimate aim of the trust is to make Sandbank a place of choice were people want to live and play.

The trust is run by a group of volunteer directors and office bearers.  The directors and office bearers are all unpaid and give their time and effort free of charge. The directors come from various backgrounds and work together to ensure projects and business of the trust are managed in line with trust policy. As well as this, we are always on the lookout for people to assist and lend a hand. If you have the time and commitment to get involved, get in touch! Check our support page to see how you can get involved.

The trust directors are always looking at methods of promoting our trust and generating income to cover running costs such as liability insurance, administration costs, accountant costs etc. etc. Funds raised by the trust supplement and increase our chances of securing grants for the various projects we have both done and plan to do.

As we are a non profit making company where every penny we raise or gain is put back into the Sandbank community.

There is so much that could be done to make this a great village to live and work in but people need to put in some effort and local groups need to communicate and work together.
