Nudge Community Builders was set up in 2017 by local people living in Stonehouse, Plymouth.

We had been volunteering in our community for over 10 years. We kick started the Union Street Party, created Union Corner and were inspired and asked by our community to do more.

Our vision is to make Union Street a street the whole world loves ❤

Our mission is to nudge lasting change in surprising and enterprising ways to build a strong local community and economy.

We aim to do this by:

  • Nudging local buildings and spaces to be used and loved.
  • Nudging local people and businesses to be brave, creative, resilient and healthy, supporting themselves and their local community.
  • Nudging local and national change for communities by using our voice and leading by example.

Find out more about how we are changing the street nudge by nudge and bringing joy and colour to the street.


Visit nudge…

We run three buildings along Union Street that had been standing empty until they had a little nudge – come and say hello and support your local community businesses.


At The Clipper you will find The Hedgerow Hound cooking up vegan treats and regular markets filling the little units through the back – plus the space is available to hire for private events. Check out what’s on.


The Plot is a shopping arcade that is always growing. Visit the Jabulani food court for fantastic flavours from around the world and check out the enterprises taking up sheds and greenhouses. Find out more and check out events and special offers here.


Union Corner is a community space and garden. Available to hire from as little as £5 per hour it’s a great place to make an idea happen or get people together. You’ll find music, crafts, Tai Chi and Soup Corner – where you can fill up on tasty free soup. Find out what’s on or book and event here.
