We are coining the term 'Community Terraforming' to describe our community transformation agenda. The term refers to our aim in making our communities more habitable for young people.

Many years ago we realised that our mission to support young people could not be done as a single organisation.

As the Vine Trust Group developed into a Community Development Trust, we sought to ?terraform? our communities by working with others, building on our expertise in being a catalyst for public, private and third sector partnership working.

We operate in a number of regions, with particular focus on the community transformation agenda.
