The Southmead Development Trust exists to serve the community of Southmead and primarily does this by running the Southmead Youth Centre and a large centre called The Greenway Centre. The centre shares the site with a GP surgery and we see ourselves as a healthy living centre, social enterprise hub and community centre. We have a board of trustees who either live or work locally.
Recently, the Trust was involved with the Southmead Community Plan, an initiative by residents and community stakeholders to benefit Southmead. We hope this plan will increase the likelihood of the estate receiving financial investment and positively influence decisions that will have an impact on Southmead.
