What our clients say

"Alan Caldwell Associates have been involved in an imaginative project to bring investment to social enterprises in some of the most remote rural areas in Scotland."

David Herd
Social Investment Scotland

"As the key inspiration behind the Market and Coastal Towns Initiative, Alan's ability to spur communities into planning their own futures is second to none. Both locally in West Devon and throughout the SW region I have first hand experienced of his infectious enthusiasm for developing innovative regeneration solutions."

Charles Coffin
Market Town Development Officer for West Devon

"A huge proportion of Westray's development success in recent years stems directly both from the solid foundation that Alan Caldwell laid and from the ongoing support he's given since. We are indebted."

About Alan Caldwell Associates

What are our principles?

We believe that:

  • The regeneration of communities should come from within those communities and be shaped by local people.
  • Regeneration must draw on all aspects of life so as to integrate economic, social, environmental and cultural opportunities and potential.
  • Regeneration is a long-term process that cannot be rushed
  • Effective regeneration requires partnerships to be created between local communities, charities, public agencies and private business, but always with the direct involvement of local people.

The aim of our work is to build the skills and experience of communities and their partners to continue the regeneration process.
