IKDT is a key member of a partnership with three other development trusts from Easdale, Lismore and Luing to form the Lorn Islands Partnership. Each island is represented in the working group by two directors. The partnership was stimulated by the field officer for Development Trusts Association – Scotland (DTAS).
The Partnership has been successful in obtaining grant funding from the Scottish Government’s Strengthening Communities Fund, administered by the Development Trusts Association Scotland (DTAS) to fund development staffing resource until March 2018. All islands are hopeful that a partnership will enable common challenges to be worked on together as well as sharing learning, resources and experiences.
