In addition, we provide a range of services that are outwith the facilities including 10-plot Allotments are operated in conjunction with the Wellhouse Allotment Society, Walking Clubs, Outward  Bound and Adventure Groups, Music Gigs and much more as we realise that it's not just about what is in your community, it's about setting goals, feeling inspired, enjoying what Scotland has on offer and having FUN!


The Trust was formed in September 2003, in response to the need for a focus on regeneration within an area that at the time was designated No1 in the Scottish Index for Multiple Deprivation.  We set out to meet the need and demand of the community which included the easily accessible services and activities that address education, employment, personal finances, childcare, health and tackle anti-social behaviour.  

There is a strong Board in place with wide ranging experience in local voluntary work.  All committee members are tenants living in the local community with skills in management, youth work, other voluntary and housing committees, business development and community councils.  BUT, most of all they have a passion to make a ‘real’ difference to the area they live in and the people that live there. 

In January 2013, the Trust changed its name to 'Connect Community Trust'.  Over the years the services of the Trust had naturally impacted on other geographical areas and therefore the name from Wellhouse and Provanhall Community Trust was appropriate.  

The new name of the Trust reflects the operations that......Connect people........Connect communities.........Connect services......
