CDLT launches new Youth Council

Posted on: 27th September 2023

News Release

We are excited to launch the Clan Donald Lands Trust (CDLT) Youth Council, which will empower our local young people to help shape our strategic decision making. To continue our work in building a better future for Sleat and Skye, our local young people must have genuine influence. Our new Youth Council will enable their voice to be heard.

The Youth Council will report directly to the charity’s CEO and Board of Trustees.

“For over half a century CDLT has created jobs and opportunities for young people on our magical island. Our Youth Council now has a big role to play in driving our inspiring new development work.”

Sir Ian Macdonald of Sleat Bt.
Chair of Trustees

“This is an exciting step forward for this local charitable trust, and a key part of our ongoing plans for meaningful community engagement, opportunities and wealth-building. We look forward to working with our local young people on a broad range of important matters, including development plans, community consultation, a proposed community asset transfer in a local village, cultural heritage, and land use.”
