What is PDT

What-is-gwsPaddington is part of the wealthiest neighbourhood in the world – the City of Westminster – but has some of the highest levels of deprivation in the country. Over the last 15 years PDT has worked alongside local people to transform the built environment and facilitate collaborative resources that provide skills and jobs, creative opportunities for young people, and a place where community enterprise flourishes alongside the democratisation of civil society.

PDT is a registered charity and not-for-profit regeneration company delivering social and economic innovation. We are members of Locality and Social Enterprise and provide additional advisory services to a mix of national and international organisations. PDT has been leading in local economic, environmental and social innovation for fifteen years; this remains our intent for the next fifteen years.

Formed by local people in 1997, PDT  has five core values: mutuality (sharing benefits within the community); empowerment (creating opportunities for local people) financial self-sufficiency, environmental sustainability, and equalities for all communities. PDT is committed to an equitable distribution of justice and power in civil society.

PDT is a great example of how a social enterprise can make a real difference to a community. The support, advice and services they provide are making a huge difference to people in their area. we are seeing a new era of people power at the centre of the new Government and its really exciting to see an organisation were this is already happening.
