Buchan Development Partnership is an independent, community-led initiative working with communities across Buchan. Based in the village of Maud, we help groups keep their essential community facilities running and tackle some of the pressing economic, social and environmental issues they face.
We began life as the Buchan Development Initiative, based in Maud. This partnership grew arms and legs and evolved into the Buchan Development Partnership in 2000. There was a strong desire at that time to broaden the range of support we could provide to communities across Buchan. This remains one of our main objectives.
Buchan Development Partnership is a limited company and a charity.
