The Development Trusts Association Wales (DTA Wales) is an independent practitioner based membership organisation promoting the work of and supporting the growing network of development trusts in Wales.
DTA Wales is part of the UK wide Development Trusts Association, the leading community enterprise and regeneration network and fast growing movement of 500 development trusts and more than 43 in Wales, with community owned assets worth £560 million.
DTA was a founding member of Community Energy Wales and now hosts the Business Development Manager. DTA Wales also manages the Renew Wales programme which offers Peer to Peer mentoring support for communities taking action on climate change. As well as this DTA Wales manages the Energy Action Group that provides support for organisations to bulk purchase their energy.
DTA Wales also has many links with development trusts in Scotland and England. It was able to share that knowledge and experience in Wales by organising a community energy event where Development Trusts from Scotland shared their experience with groups from Wales.
