Support for Charities and Community Groups

Here at Torbay Communities, we have a proud and long history of supporting the charity and voluntary sectors to ensure they remain strong, resilient, well-resourced and capable of providing the best local support to our communities. That is why we adopted our strapline ‘stronger together’.

 

We know that smaller charities cannot be jacks of all trades, and that is where we can help with specialist expertise in a wide range of skills and services.

Help us champion Torbay’s unsung volunteer heroes

Thousands of people help make a difference to hundreds of organisations across the Bay, but they often work behind the scenes and no matter how hard we try cannot be celebrated and thanked enough for what they do.

We want to be able to tell their stories. If you have a volunteer that you would like to feature, then email [email protected] and we will arrange to talk to them.

Developing opportunities with the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector across Torbay. Empowering and support communities to create real change in their own neighbourhoods.

Developing opportunities with the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector across Torbay. Empowering and support communities to create real change in their own neighbourhoods.

Established following discussions with over 100 voluntary sector representatives, The Torbay Community Development Trust (TCDT) was formed with the intention of making Torbay a place where all people feel included.  The Trust empowers communities, building on strengths and skills through Asset-Based Community Development.

 

Now known as Torbay Communities, our overall aim is to create better communication across the Bay, actively encouraging local involvement and decision-making in improving the region, as well as developing and supporting volunteering opportunities of the highest standards.
