Charity information

Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust

The Trust is a local, independent charity dedicated to looking after Torbay's wildlife, countryside, coast and heritage. Our mission is "to protect land, conserve nature and strengthen the bonds between people and the natural world of Torbay". We run an extensive programme of events for children, activities for volunteers and projects to get people involved in Torbay. We have recently won some funding for our Berry Head on the Edge project to protect Berry Head's fragile habitats, Napoleonic forts and Second World War fortifications, whilst improving access to the site as well as funding to improve and conserve Cockington in Torquay which now requires major investment. Occombe Farm is the hub of our education work and funding is sought for improving access to farming and the countryside at the farm.
