Alder Trust believes that every community can thrive through recognising the knowledge, skills and talents within that community, and by harnessing that wealth through building relational networks that recognise and serve each other.
We are passionate about creating hope, supporting families, and growing self-sustaining communities. This may involve replicating successes or provoking change through innovation. In essence, our focus is people; our priority is finding ways we can support communities to be safe, while making their contribution towards everyone’s enjoyment of the fullness of life. Alder Trust seeks to cultivate inclusive, accessible, agile, sustainable and transformational projects.
What We Do
We design, advise on, and deliver community-based solutions to presenting needs and challenges. We build relationships; we network; we look for gaps; we engage and integrate - applying corporate sector expertise to enable communities to better thrive. Our work connects us with multiple initiatives across the region and we provide consultancy, research, project delivery support, and network events. We promote the work of others alongside developing and leading on our own services.
Firgrove offers free support and information for those facing an unintended pregnancy as well as pre and post abortion, miscarriage and baby loss counselling. We are helping develop and grow their existing services.
So far the information I have had from them has been useful and one training session I attend run by them was very worthwhile.
Safeguarding Lead, King's Community Church
It has been a pleasure to work with Dave & Megan. Throughout the work they did for us, there was an open, regular communication and reporting. We knew where the time was being spent and the results of the work and the progress made. Alder Trust has added organisations to those on the website and this has widened the benefits to the public who need to access advice.
Project Director, CLEAR
Our first meeting was friendly and informative. Alder Trust opened up possibilities for us - since we are updated with new activities and we are given valuable information to help benefit our clients. We are now in a position to give parents a wide range of activities enhancing their quality of contact.

Partnering with The Alder Trust has been a brilliant experience, and provided a valuable addition to our regular youth work. The staff members were knowledgeable and easy to work with, and the programme the Alder Trust put together was personalised to the young people we engage with and deigned to fit in with the sessions we run. All in all, the Alder Trust is a fantastic resource for young people!
