ENCAP’s mission is to build thriving, sustainable and inclusive communities, foster self-sufficiency and enhance the quality of life if its residents and visitors.

We believe that everyone has a positive role to play in society and that communities should be inclusive of all. Communities make the places they inhabit. Over time the choices we make will shape the future of East Neuk that our children and grandchildren enjoy here.

We promote and assist in the development of a series of Local Community Action Plans

We are committed to helping local organisations, residents and grassroots groups to develop new community-led projects that will have a positive impact on the East Neuk of Fife.

We lead the Shared Path Project from Pittenweem to Earlsferry funded by Sustrans and Transport Scotland. We have recently started to work on this ambitious project, and we hope to build the path in 2023. You can read more about this project here

We are currently looking for funding to develop an innovative approach to get the residents and visitors of East Neuk involved in the process of planning for the future. We strive to conduct a strategic local place plan covering the whole of East Neuk which will include topics such as circular economy, active travel, mental health and wellbeing, environment and woodland, zero waste, the climate emergency.
