SCOTTISH housebuilder Barratt Developments has launched a new community fund to improve and support the lives of local communities in and around its developments.

The Barratt and David Wilson Homes Community Fund will donate a total of £3,000 each month to three different charities or organisations in Scotland, which will be used to improve the quality of life for those living in the area.

A total of £36,000 will be donated across the year through the fund. Each charity can only be awarded a maximum of £1,000 per year.

Douglas McLeod, regional managing director for Barratt developments in Scotland commented, “As the country’s largest housebuilder we are committed to creating a positive legacy. We want to lead the industry not just in the quality of the homes and developments we build but also in our work with charities and good causes based within the communities where we are building those homes.

“We believe our fund can provide some much needed support to local groups, who are committed to improving these communities. Whether it’s by sprucing up the outdoor environment, creating local play facilities for children or supporting the more vulnerable, we know that that there are hundreds of good causes out there which can benefit from our support.”
