Established in 1995 through the amalgamation of two groups, the DDCA is the largest charity in Dufftown and we succeed in our activities thanks to the dedication of passionate volunteers.
We are led, run and supported by residents of Dufftown & District whom are passionate about the long term success of the town and area. We believe that in order to succeed we need passionate residents to support our activities today, while helping to shape the activities for tomorrow.
The DDCA has 6 key sub groups that help us structure and convey our works.
Diverse and Inclusive communities
The DDCA has worked with most groups within in Dufftown and aims to foster passionate community development by giving everyone a voice. We also work with the Cabrach, Glenrinnes and Glenlivet communities to synchronise our approach to community development within the broader Speyside and Moray. We foster strong links with the third sector and The Moray Council.
Sensitive to our history
Steeped in history stretching back to the 1500s, Dufftown is a vibrant town filled historic buildings and artefacts. While stretching the community into the future we remain sensitive to what has come before.
“Passionate volunteers are the precious gems of the community, they are motivated when supporting both the satisfying and frustrating parts of community development”Fraser McGill – DDCA Chairperson
The DDCA is flourishing charity with growth aspirations but we need people and passion to keep us going. Please get in touch to support us and our work.
