Welcome to Clackmannan

Clackmannan Development Trust is a membership-led charity striving to make Clackmannan a better place to live, work and visit. Working with community partners, we help to deliver a range of services and activities that have been developed in response to the needs of the community.

The Bruce Lounge is the venue for regular drop-in surgeries including Citizen’s Advice, Home Energy Advisors, Adult Social Care services, a Community Larder and more.

Supported by grant funding, we take forward a range of projects encouraging active travel, celebrating local heritage, inspiring community engagement and promoting tourism. All have a common aim – to improve the quality of life in Clackmannan, Kennet and Forestmill.

The Butterfly Garden in Bloom

The Butterfly Garden

The Butterfly Garden sprang into life in 2017 and has become a much-loved feature of the town. The garden is maintained by volunteers with input from local businesses and the Primary School, supported by donations and funders.

Active Travel

We are here to encourage and support anyone who would like to cycle more, for leisure or as a cost-effective method of travel. Our Active Travel Co-Ordinator is on hand for all your cycling needs – we offer bike hire and e-bike hire, maintenance workshops, servicing and small repairs, and cycle training. Saddle Up social rides take place on the 3rd Sunday of the month – a great way to exercise, meet people and explore the area.

Caring & Connected

Caring and Connected Clackmannan is a collaboration of key local organisations formed to identify and address areas of need within the community. The partnership brings together the Parish Church, Police, Health Centre, Community Council, Primary School, Tenants and Residents Federation, Health and Social Care Partnership and local Council representation. We are working together to better address the issues faced by our community including rising energy costs, access to dementia services and support for older residents, help for immigrant families and social care needs. We meet monthly to exchange updates and discuss how we can support each other to deliver targeted services for the benefit of all.
