Vision: To create a thriving, resilient and sustainable community for Balerno
Mission: Work in partnership with others to help make our community stronger and more sustainable – environmentally, socially and economically

BVT’s aims are:

  • Sustainability
  • Community development
  • Education & health
  • To fund other local people to do the same

– all this within Balerno and surrounding districts.  You can read the detail in our Articles of Association.

BVT (formerly BVCDF) was founded in 2003 by Balerno Community Council. Our projects aim to complement and support the work of the Balerno Community Council.

BVT is a company limited by guarantee with charitable status. As a Development Trust, we are members of DTA Scotland, and are well constituted to start and run community enterprises.

We are an open organisation – open to local people who would like to add to the quality of our community life.
