About us

We’re Southmead Development Trust, a charity made up of staff, volunteers and residents who work together to achieve our vision of a thriving community. We improve health, wellbeing, local pride, and employment. We bring business and investment to the area.

Our sites – the Greenway Centre and Southmead Adventure Playground (The Ranch), are much-loved community venues that provide inspiring spaces for events, meetings, training and business.  We run or host an exciting programme of events ranging from conferences and sporting events, to creative writing, dancing and pantomimes.  Our customers join a fun, welcoming community and enjoy our large café and newly refurbished gym.

We’re a growing and vibrant team with our HQ at our Greenway Centre. We love where we work, it’s a lively community space with a gym, café, and huge outdoor space connecting to Badock’s Wood Nature Reserve – great for walking meetings and lunchtime strolls.

Our values

Positivity – regardless of change

Integrity – being true to our word

Excellence – going above and beyond

Welcoming – respecting everyone

Entrepreneurial – for the long term good of our communities


Our values were decided by our staff and trustees. They shape how we work with residents, partners and each other, and guide the decisions we make.

What's it like to work here?

“I love the flexibility and way we can make it our own for the benefit of residents and the wider community. We have a unique offer, which is very much needed in society and helps build social connections and support the pressures of adult social care. I’ve really enjoyed developing my role and working alongside people within this inspiring community. This role is very rewarding and a really great opportunity to work authentically with values and purpose!”
