Our Approach

Will be to:

  • Increase confidence, aspirations and expectations by delivering a programme of transformational social and economic activity, in the Manor and Castle ward, that helps individuals and communities engage, and builds the confidence and capacity of local individuals and organisations to access opportunities :- jobs, services, training, enterprise and education.
  • To advocate for and influence the delivery of services that are the best quality possible for local people. To ensure that what the Trust offers is complementary and does not displace other services.
  • To create and sustain a well-managed, quality, physical environment, in the land and properties that Manor and Castle Development Trust own and manage, which will enhance the well-being of local people.
  • MCDT will work with other key partners in the area and make a contribution to achieving the vision for the neighbourhoods
