The North Yard Community Trust CIO has been set up as an independent organisation to manage £150,000 a year for 25 years on behalf of local people living in Barne Barton, Keyham, Kings Tamerton, St Budeaux and Weston Mill.


We’ve distributed over £668,000 to more than 85 local projects.


The Trust funds projects that benefit people living in the North Yard Community Trust area. Projects from a wide range of categories can be supported including improving public spaces, youth facilities, public health schemes, well-being initiatives, energy efficiency initiatives, improving underused land, sustainable transport, restoration of historic buildings and regeneration projects.

How we work

The North Yard Community Trust is run by local people for the benefit of our local area. We are supported by local Plymouth City Councillors and advised by Plymouth Community Healthcare, Plymouth City Council and MVV.
