About us

Linwood brickLinwood Community Development Trust (LCDT) was formed by a group of volunteers from the local community, who want to improve health and wellbeing, reduce social inequalities and build social capital within Linwood.

We have created positive changes needed to make Linwood a more attractive place with a more vibrant and healthier community.

The Trust is determined to retain and upgrade community facilities for Linwood residents of all age groups. We have acquired 15 acres of land through community asset transfers to develop “fit for purpose” community facilities that will meet the needs of our local community.

Following extensive consultation with the local community, the Trust has now developed a number of projects to address issues which local residents identified as being important. These are Roots of Linwood, Linwood in Bloom, Linwood Community Choir, Kit & Caboodle & The Mossedge Village.

LCDT is a non-profit, charitable organisation and all surpluses are reinvested back into the community.
