About Us

We are an award winning organisation with over 15 years experience of community development.

London Development Trust is a charity and social enterprise. We deliver community services that provide value for money and create lasting benefits.

We do this through our Five Key Principles, which we believe are fundamental to community development.

By working closely with local people, we are able to deliver programmes tailored to support the community.

To date this includes:

to nurture and celebrate creativity in the local area.

and outside spaces for people to meet up, take a class and learn new skills.

We work with employers and local authorities to support people into work.

through a range of classes such as dance, yoga and fitness classes and gardening and cooking clubs.

By providing opportunities for people to interact, we create communities not just neighbourhoods.

We take an evidence-based approach to development. We conduct baseline studies which we report against to demonstrate the impact of our work.
