Eastside Community Trust was created in 2020 from a merger of Easton Community Centre, Felix Road Adventure Playground and Up OUr Street.
These three successful and well-respected charities have always worked closely and share many of the same values and aspirations for the community. It was our collective ambition for the area that brought us together.
Up Our Street was the successor of Community at Heart which was founded in 2000 as the resident-led, government funded New Deal for Communities regeneration programme. UOS brings 20 years’ experience delivering Asset Based Community Development, communications and research projects supporting local people to participate in civic life.
Felix Road Adventure Playground was founded in 1972 by local people offering a unique and playful space for approximately 900 children and families a year. Felix Road operates with a strong values based child-led play work ethic providing a mix of targeted and universal children’s services.
Easton Community Centre was built in 1989 by a partnership of residents and Bristol City Council and runs as a busy hub open seven days a week offering affordable meeting and office spaces with a café, nursery and community radio station.
