Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust is an independent, local registered charity working to protect Torbay’s green heritage for the future. Our team of dedicated staff, trustees and tireless volunteers will ensure that your legacy goes directly to where it is most needed to conserve the natural beauty of Torbay.

Many of Torbay’s special places hold a host of happy memories for many of us. They are all wildlife havens and home to many rare and beautiful species. We hold these sites and others in trust for the people of Torbay and for our visitors.

Your legacy, large or small, will help ensure that the Trust can continue to protect all these special places as well as 22 miles of coast path across Torbay, long into the future. Just look at some of the things your legacy could be used for.
