FACT is a community development trust that aims to make the Forres area a better place to live, work and visit. Based on community priorities we have prepared a Growth Plan – July 2013.  Our focus over the coming months will be Town Centre Renewal, Tourism Development, opportunities for young people, developing a craft makers collective and generating an income for FACT.

We aim to work in partnership with a range of organisations, businesses, community groups and individuals to take forward these priorities.

FACT’s vision for the Forres area is:

Forres has a distinctive Town Centre which is thriving, vibrant and welcoming.  There are attractive social spaces, an exciting cultural scene and ways to appreciate the natural environment.  The community own income generating assets and there is a supportive framework for employment and training.  Community collaboration is in abundance and continues to flourish.
