Supporting our Community to Thrive

Welcome to Southmead Development Trust

Watch our film: 2020 What a year!

We work alongside residents in North Bristol to help to keep communities strong, resilient, and resourceful.

Our expert teams connect with adults, children, families and community groups to offer support with physical and mental health, employment and training, area regeneration, and community business.

We create and provide inspiring community spaces for events, meetings, training and business.

Whether you’re an individual or an organisation, we are here to help you enable growth and to support positive wellbeing.

We’ve been here supporting our residents throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
