Forres Area Community Trust has been set up to work with local communities to take forward actions that will benefit the area.
FACT is managed by a Board of Directors who were elected at a public meeting in March 2011. Frances Powell, Cameron Taylor and Kirsty Conti were employed as Local Development Officers and started work in February 2012.
FACT is a Company Limited by Guarantee (No. SC412275) and our registered office is the Hub, 20 Tolbooth Street, Forres. We will operate as a Development Trust and have been accepted as a provisional member of the Development Trust Association. We have also recently joined the Moray Social Enterprise Network and intend to seek charitable status when our plans for development are more defined.
Being a Development Trust means that we:
Are owned and managed by the local community
Are independent but can also work with other organisations
Aim to improve the local community
Aim to earn money to invest in the local community
