We want to promote citizenship and community development while protecting and improving the environment.

We believe that physical ownership is key to a successful community and that any community will be more successful if its surroundings are an attractive place to live, work and play.

These aims can only be achieved by enabling individuals and organisations to create and maintain communities which are self-reliant and sustainable.

We do this through the acquisition of land and property for development, creating the facilities and amenities crucial to a strong and vibrant community. These include:

  • Affordable and spacious homes
  • Employment opportunities
  • Recreational facilities
  • Essential services
  • A clean and pleasant environment
  • The ability to participate in core decision making

Hometown Foundation projects will initially be carried out in Scotland. Over time, these will be extended to other locations in the United Kingdom.
