Local Charity ACT has a strong and positive vision – to maintain, enhance and promote the coast and countryside of Argyll so it can be enjoyed by residents and visitors.
This new initiative is a partnership between Argyll and Bute Council, the Forestry Commission, NHS Highland and Scottish Natural Heritage and will be active in a variety of projects running across the area.
ACT will focus on initiatives which improve opportunities in the access, biodiversity, health and wellbeing, economic growth, heritage and environmental tourism sectors. The new charity will provide opportunities to support existing initiatives and projects and will be actively encouraging the people of Argyll and existing groups to get involved.
Following a successful funding bid of £10,000 for the launch project, ACT’s new website has gone live and takes an active and inclusive approach towards making Argyll a more attractive place to live, work and visit.
You are encouraged to get involved via the website at www.act-now.org.uk – there are a range of options to join ACT as a member, friend, facebook follower or business supporter. Members will have the opportunity to suggest projects and join the Board, as well as receiving regular updates.
