Development Services

BCDC built our company from the ground up. A traditional community development organisation in every way, we understand the struggles and obstacles of setting up your own development organisation to better the community we live in.

Are you looking to make a change in your community and don’t know where to start?

Maybe you are part of a community group looking for charitable status to apply for funding?

Our Previous Development Work

In 2020 BCDC provided development services to Possilpark People's Trust to assist their project to build a new Community Centre in Possilpark.

From supporting the Trust with sourcing and monitoring funds, advising on corporate governance and management structures, assisting with Staff recruitment, and the complexities of navigating through a multi-million construction project, BCDC received much recognition and praise.
