Nudge Community Builders has been set up by local people who have been volunteering and leading Stonehouse Action in Plymouth for many years. We kick started the Street Party, created Union Corner and are inspired and asked by our community to do more.
Nudge Community Builders is here to grow and build on all that local knowledge and experience to really make a difference in our area and make sure the local community benefits from changes in our area in a way that is unique and special. Here are our latest Nudges.
We also give other communities and organisations a little nudge towards their dreams. If you would like us to work for you please get in touch.
We are supported by these lovely people:
