Twechar Community Action is a company limited by guarantee with charitable status which was formed in 2001 as a response to the closure of the recreation centre in Twechar owned and operated by East Dunbartonshire Council.

Twechar Community Action transformed the old recreation Centre into Twechar Healthy Living and Enterprise Centre. A community hub which houses a full time pharmacy, a satellite GP surgery, café, sports hall and meeting rooms and a vast range of activities and services. The company therefore has its origins in the action of local people to retain and improve one of the few facilities and amenities in the village.
