The Greenway Centre Case Study The Greenway Centre is a local community and business hub in Southmead, Bristol, run by Southmead Development Trust. It hosts a wide range of activities for various community groups, from employment and training course for adults, to exercise classes for ex-offenders and those who have had heart attacks or lung problems. In early 1995, an initiative to improve the management of the Greenway Centre and to maximise local use and involvement was put forward. An interim steering committee of local residents and city councillors was established on 1st April 1995 with a remit to manage the centre and establish a locally elected Development Trust.The Greenway centre now provides the following services: Facilities for community groups, including exercise classes, a choir and a community church. Community gym and fitness classes, including a GP referral scheme and exercise for those on release from the local prison. Courses for jobseekers with few qualifications Affordable business pods for start-up businesses. The charity also works alongside statutory and voluntary organisations to improve the quality of life of residents in Southmead. The charity also promotes community cohesion by organising events such as the Southmead Festival.
