Overview of Fauldhouse

Fauldhouse is a warm and welcoming community where people want to stay or return to.

The village has a rural location, it grew around its rich mining resources and has its own distinctive micro climate. However, the industrial history of Fauldhouse has left many environmental challenges. Fauldhouse’s location and poor transport links mean that villagers who do not have their own transport have limited employment opportunities and are isolated from resources and facilities that most residents of West Lothian benefit from.

Fauldhouse’s population of just under 5,000 people is made up of 19% aged 0 to 15 years, 63% of working age and 18% of pension age.

Fauldhouse does suffer from a number of issues within its community, but its location and history have also fostered a strong identity as well as an attitude of self help and local action and the village boasts a healthy network of voluntary and community groups.
