A spirit of togetherness

This new community already enjoys a spirit of togetherness that has seen many groups and partnerships come together across Sherford to support community projects such as the Mutual Aid Group that supported families in need during the pandemic, and community involvement during the Tour of Britain, which started its second leg at Sherford in September 2021.


Shape the community

The Sherford Community Trust has been set up to help shape the community both socially and economically as it continues to develop. The Trust works with residents to support community-related activities, including shaping neighbourhood facilities, promoting sustainable living, encouraging social networks, assisting associations and clubs, and supporting the economic development of the town.

Support for the community

Sherford Community Trust also manages Sherford Community Hub, a flexible space for community events and activities that is also available for external organisations to hire.

Formed using start-up funds from the Sherford Consortium, the Trust is also funded via an annual contribution from Sherford residents.

The Trust is a not-for-profit limited company, whose board of directors includes a representative from each of the local councils (South Hams District Council, Devon County Council, Plymouth City Council and Brixton Parish Council) and members of the Sherford Consortium.
