These grants are intended to foster social welfare, support education, and promote the arts and culture within the local community.

In addition to its grant-giving activities, the Bideford Bridge Trust owns, builds, and maintains commercial and residential properties in Bideford. These properties are rented to local people and businesses, further supporting the community’s growth and development.
