Providing the people of Neilston with a unique and exciting opportunity

The new charity

Neilston Windfarm Legacy (NWL) was registered as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) on 26 February 2018 by OSCR. Our Charity Registration Number is SC048161. The registered office (and postal address) is The Old Bank, 84 Main Street, Neilston, Glasgow G78 3EA.

As part of a funding agreement between NWL and Neilston Development Trust (NDT), an annual contribution from the Legacy will be made to support NDT operations for at least five years. This funding replaces the money that in the past came to NDT from income generated by the windfarm.

In order to protect the value of the Legacy against inflation and to allow for growth, the donation of £2 million has been divided to create an Accessible fund, which can be drawn from on a regular basis for approved eligible projects, and a longer term Investment reserve.

After a careful selection process NWL has appointed Brewin Dolphin to manage our investments and support our Trustees with information and training. They have a specialist team of financial advisers dedicated to helping charities invest their funds and manage their money effectively.
