Torbay’s Voluntary, Community and Social  Enterprise Sector has been experiencing a  period of significant change, in part in  response to those severe reductions in the  public sector that are having such a major impact on local life - with more, of course, to come. A series of open discussions over a  period of  many months and involving more than  100 voluntary sector representatives has  resulted in our establishing a Community Development Trust for Torbay (Torbay CDT), its intention being to make Torbay a place where all people feel included and can become involved in growing a thriving local community.
