Providing access, in the heart of Taunton, to outdoor, sporting and social opportunities for the whole community, particularly its young people.

COACH is a charity promoting community values in an active and sporting environment.

Situated in the very heart of Taunton, the new community building is both welcoming and functional. Its location, in Taunton’s French Weir Park, links 69 acres (28 hectares) of public green space at Longrun Meadow with the River Tone and Taunton’s town centre and is accessible to all.

Can you help make COACH even better?

Sustainability is one of our key aims; most of our ongoing costs are now self-funded but below is a list of items, projects and skills that will take COACH from good to even better. Are you able to help us achieve these aspirations?

There are a number of ways you or your organisation can get involved. As a community-based charity, seeking practical help and identifying funding opportunities is ongoing.

If you would like to lend a hand, feature on our sponsorship board, or indeed if you wish to donate quietly, please speak to one of the team. We look forward to talking to you.
