Beith Community Development Trust
Beith, Ayrshire, KA15 1BY
At BCDT our aim is to improve the mental and physical fitness of the community, through regeneration and enabling of possibilities within Beith.
We hope to create local wealth and jobs, by bringing money into the community and keeping it within Beith. Most importantly we are working to enable local growth within the community. Our biggest and most fundamental enabling project to date has been the generation of Beith Astro; a full-size synthetic football pitch.
The success of Beith Astro has led to BCDT enabling a number of other community clubs and groups such as the Beith Can Bike club; the West Coast Paddlers; and Unlicensed Events which allows creative arts within the community to flourish.
BCDT also enables the Big Swap; a project aimed at recycling, reusing and reducing within Beith through the management of kit swaps, and eco-laundry powered by our very own solar panels.
We want to increase Beith?s fitness one person at a time and one way in which we do this is through Social Football, this includes our Pay & Play days, Fun Friday Footy Fives and Summer Camps.
We organise a number of community programs; such as Wee Shots, which allows the community the freedom to try new sport activities. A Credit Union community owned bank is also available to provide access to affordable loans and savings. BCDT is also an approved assessment centre offering SQA qualifications through Sports Leader Scotland.
We are proud to partner with; Project Scotland, Oxfam Scotland, Zero Waste Scotland, Climate Challenge Fund and North Ayrshire Council.
