The Causey Development Trust

The Causey Development Trust has received support from the Heritage Lottery Fund Catalyst grant to develop a fundraising campaign. The fundraising campaign will support the organisation’s project to transform a neglected, car dominated public space into a vibrant, people-friendly place that celebrates the history and spirit of the Southside of Edinburgh.

The transformed urban space will create a distinctive city landmark at the edge of the World Heritage site, create an uplifting and inspiring community space that plays host to a wide variety of arts and community events and act as an exemplar for transforming urban spaces into places for people, providing a model for engaging a local community in a pro-active way. The process of developing a fundraising campaign for the organisation includes understanding the need for new fundraising activity, setting up a campaign team, establishing a strategy and action plan and putting these actions into place in order to raise the funds necessary.
