Dollar Community Development Trust is a volunteer-led charity aimed at making Dollar a better place to live, work, study, and visit. Our Trustees, alongside our Development Officer, work with a dedicated team of volunteers to run projects and provide services to support Dollar’s community, such as the Library and the volunteer driver service. We also run the town’s community centre – The Hive.

This website provides a snapshot of who we are and what we do, so have a look around and if you can’t find what you’re looking for then feel free to get in touch

We have ambitious plans for the next five years. We are concentrating our work on three main areas: Caring, Connected Dollar, which is continuing our work to develop a caring and supportive community, Sustainable Dollar to support the community to reduce its carbon footprint, and Destination Dollar which is about developing and supporting local facilities and businesses, running local events, and showcasing our tourism offer.

We believe that Dollar is a fantastic place to live and visit and we love to show it off. We have produced this short film, thanks to funding from Scotland’s Towns Partnership, showcasing what our town has to offer.
