Make a donation

Lead a change

We are your partner for making improvements in your community.

However big or small the change is that you wish to see, let’s make it happen. We can help you take your idea forward, create plans, identify the needs of the community, find supporters, overcome setbacks and make decisions.


We need MANY community leaders. With many community leaders, our communities will do better. The more people leading a change, the more problems we will solve and the more we will achieve. Community leaders can think about and organise around many different issues: youth development, sustainable growth, education, community buildings, community gardens and local economic growth amongst many. We need leaders from all walks of life so that everyone within the community is represented.

Simple ways to get involved


Even if you have just one spare hour a week, you can get involved in your community and CCDT by:


  • volunteering your time
  • joining our Task Group or Management Group
  • helping to maintain our buildings
  • supporting our work by joining a focus group
  • offering your skills as a mentor to the team
