Welcome to Kirkcudbright Development Trust

Working together to create a sustainable, inclusive, and bright future for our community.
Kirkcudbright Development Trust (KDT) is a community run and managed registered charity. It has been formed as an umbrella organisation to help a wide range of local groups secure funding to develop new and improved community projects for the Kirkcudbright and DG6 area.

Kirkcudbright is a vibrant market town where there is a great spirit of community and aspiration

If you are interested in volunteering get in touch on the KYP Facebook
