Welcome to Inner Forth Futures

The Inner Forth Futures (IFF) partnership aims to make the Inner Forth a better place to live, work, visit and invest in, by helping to promote its natural and cultural heritage, and sustainable transport options. We also want to support communities so that they feel confident to take a greater role in managing and promoting the area’s heritage for themselves.

Our project area includes the parts of Stirling, Falkirk, Clackmannanshire and Fife that surround the Inner Forth. We have been working together since 2011. Explore the site to find out more.

Our current project, Climate FORTH - Furthering Our Resilience Through Heritage, will facilitate and demonstrate the transformative action needed to transition to a climate literate, ready and resilient place.
