The next webinar of the CEIS & Interface Inclusive Innovation Programme is delivered in partnership with Development Trusts Association Scotland (DTAS)

In this webinar we will hear from Barbara Elborn, Secretary of Newcastleton & District Community Trust (NDCT). Barbara will tell how the Trust applied for Interface support via the Inclusive Innovation programme in September 2022 and how, in three months, they had received expert advice from the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS) to develop a detailed proposal to enable the community to consider constructing genuinely affordable, low carbon houses for the community utilising timber from their community owned forest.

Are you a Development Trust that has an idea that’s been sitting on the back burner for a while? Don’t have the resources, capacity or funds to take it forward? Would you like to find out how the Inclusive Innovation programme could help?

Join our webinar to hear how the programme can help match you with expert support and potential funding opportunities to take your idea forward. Early stage ideas are welcomed.


Working collaboratively, CEIS and Interface aim to facilitate and support new inclusive innovation in the social enterprise and enterprising third sectors in Scotland. The programme is designed to raise awareness of available opportunities for support for enterprises or individuals with innovative solutions for growth, sustainability or to address social and environmental problems within Scotland, and beyond.
