Membership Privacy Notice


Who we are

Dunoon Area Alliance was established in 2017 by SURF - Scotland's Regeneration Forum as part of their place based Alliance for Action programme.  In 2021 DAA was established as Dunoon's Community Development Trust, a Scottish Incorporated Charitable Organisation (SCIO SC051050) to support community-led, sustainable regeneration action on local priority themes.

Membership of the Trust is free and open to anyone who lives, works or studies in Cowal.  Community groups, organisations and agencies can also become Associate Members of the Trust.
