Working Towards a Better Tomorrow

Amble Development Trust was formed as a Limited Company in 1994, in response to locally identified issues highlighted through a Civic Regeneration Study. The Trust became a registered charity in 1995.

The main objective of the Trust is to regenerate the former coal mining town of Amble by securing funding to initiate a wide range of projects including major infrastructure and community development schemes.

In addition to regeneration the Trust offers a range of additional services which include Employment Counselling, The Ambler (Community newspaper delivered to every household in the town), operating a range of social enterprises, conservation activities, organising events, plus general information and signposting.

The Trust operates an Open Door policy, trying to assist the community in any way it can.
