The Torry Development Trust is based in Aberdeen and joined STP some years ago. We have received considerable support, advice and access to networking opportunities to learn and share with other DTs. STP is a passionate advocate of third sector community enterprise that encourages innovative thinking and problem solving for community benefits, and this helps to build cross sector links with local and national government.
Scotland's Towns Partnership is the go-to organisation for DTAS when we’re working with the Place Agenda. It is well connected, well respected and expert. STP have been invaluable to our members who seek to regenerate their town centres and are also able to connect them into other helpful organisations in that same landscape.
Scottish Grocers Federation is delighted to be part of Scotland’s Town Partnership. STP has become a centre of excellence in innovation, networking, campaigning and in influencing key policy and decision makers. Playing a unique role in supporting our towns and communities, STP consistently gives a strong voice to all its members.
STP is a valuable resource for Local Authorities and for our town centres, they provide connections, networking opportunities and valuable communications. They have been key to shaping policy and leading innovative change that our town centres need to survive and thrive.
Our membership with STP has proved to be an invaluable resource particularly over this challenging year. The regular updates on funding available, training webinars and help with the promotion of Alloa First has been worth far more that the annual membership. It’s also nice to feel part of a wider network that has the best interests for Scotland’s towns top of the agenda.
