Penwith Community Development Trust
What we do
We are a Cornish charity aiming to relieve poverty, reduce social isolation and support healthy living. We do this through education, skills development, volunteering and the promotion of community development.
Our ethos is to help people to help themselves and to help them identify their local needs so as to develop and deliver services tailored to suit their environment. We aim to be an example of good practice for voluntary and community organisations both locally and nationally so that initiatives started in West Cornwall can be enjoyed throughout the nation.
We have a well-established track record over many years of leading and delivering large scale community based projects and our staff have over 150 years’ experience in the voluntary sector between them. With this experience we aim to grow PCDT and embrace new opportunities to improve people’s quality of life.
