Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust - Glasgow
The Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET) in Glasgow was set up to support the local community in working towards its 20 year environmental vision. This includes activity such as recycling, energy efficiency, buildings and green spaces. The group is also working on cycling and bike repair projects.
The Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre has been the focus of the project’s work for the last few years and been a big success. The building is now complete and DRCET is in the process of handing it over to Heart of Scotstoun.
The project has generally been working on grant funded projects, but over the last couple of years it has been trying to generate core income to become more sustainable, for example selling bikes and doing repairs to generate income as an enterprise.
