What does being a ‘member’ of the Trust mean?
A member is a part-owner of the company, who can attend all General meetings, as well as the AGM, and are entitled to receive notification of such meetings. They are entitled to exercise their right to vote on any motion put before them for consideration at the meeting. (Members can also petition for a general meeting to be called if they so wish.) Members elect Directors.
What is a Development Trust:
Development trusts are about active citizens coming together to address local issues creatively using self-help, trading for social purpose and ownership of buildings and land to bring about long-term social, economic and environmental benefits in their community.
- Operate in both rural and urban areas, often in neighbourhoods which have experienced the worst economic decline.
- Are independent, but work with the public sector, private businesses and with other community groups.
- Are community ‘anchor’ organisations, delivering services and facilities, finding solutions to local problems and helping other organisations and initiatives succeed.
- Create wealth in communities – and keep it there.
