Stratherrick and Foyers Community Trust (SFCT) is a not-for-profit community company established in 2004 by the Stratherrick and Foyers Community Council to receive and distribute ‘community benefit’ funds received from Energy companies (e.g. Windfarm and Hydro scheme firms) operating in our geographical area.  The aim of the Trust is to help ensure the environmental protection, wellbeing and economic sustainability of all parts of the community area that may be affected by any “Green Energy” developments.

Our Vision Statement

“We will act to enhance the quality of lives of people by engaging with the issues that matter to the community and by supporting people, at a sustainable level (i.e. with finance, personal time, specific knowledge etc.), to help people make things happen.”

Since 2004 we have distributed a wide variety of grants to local groups and individuals and we are now focusing on financing some long term ‘legacy’ projects too.  Full details of the sort of grants we have distributed are visible on the ‘Grants Awarded’  page and you can make your own application for a grant using the forms on the ‘Grants’ page.

We are guided by our ‘Articles of Association’ which include our Objects, both of which determine what we do and how we behave.  Full details of these are available in the ‘Documents’ page of this website but here is a summary of our ‘Objects’:

  • To prevent or relieve poverty
  • To advance education, training and/or retraining
  • To advance heritage
  • To advance environmental protection and improvement
  • To advance citizenship and/or community development
  • To advance the provision of recreational facilities

We are also listed at Companies House and abide by all relevant company legislation including producing annual accounts and sound financial planning and control. Our full Annual Accounts are available for download on the ‘Trust Documents’ page of this website.
