Connected communities make change happen
Dunoon is a great place to live, work and study. There are a lot of people doing incredible things for the benefit of our town. By bringing more people on board. By reaching out to those who we’ve not reached out to before. We are connecting our community so that together we can improve our town and our quality of life.
We bring people, ideas and resources together and support community-led activities that are
Good for our environment,
Good for our economy,
Good for our people.
Everyone has something to contribute to our community. So we build alliances. Between volunteers, community groups, businesses and public bodies. We connect people to work together on shared goals.
We believe in the power of community
In all that we do, we think about
Sustainability. We believe that community development can be good for people, the planet and our economy.
Community-led action. We believe that people in our community are best placed to drive forward initiatives for the benefit of Dunoon.
Inclusivity. We believe that everyone living, working or studying in Dunoon should have the opportunity to get involved or have their say in our community.
Collaboration. We believe that bringing people together in our community can make exciting things happen for the benefit and development of Dunoon.
